Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology (Honours)

This program incorporates courses in both viticulture and oenology and qualifies graduates to work as either a viticulturalist, oenologist (winemaker) or in related professions (e.g. hospitality and tourism, and the food and beverage industry). Viticulture is the study of grape vines and their cultivation and includes site selection, vineyard establishment, management of pests and diseases and the informed application of irrigation and fertiliser to optimise vineyard yield and grape quality. The viticulturalist typically works closely with the winemaker to achieve the desired winemaking outcome. The winemaker utilises their training in the science of winemaking (oenology), to process grapes for the production of white, red, still and sparkling and fortified wines. The viticulturalist / winemaker often contributes to in-house research, sales and promotion of the finished product.
