The objective is to help students acquire scientific, cultural and economic knowledge as well as the technical and strategic skills of grape growing and ripening, wine production and marketing.
Consistent with this overall objective, the programme particularly focuses on the concepts of terroir and typicality, providing students with the expertise to characterise, protect and promote wine diversity and identity.
