MASTER DEGREE IN SUSTAINABLE VITICULTURE AND ENOLOGY

The course:

The wine sector is by definition “international”.

Italy, a world leader together with France, now exports more than 50% of the wine it produces. Therefore, interaction with stakeholders from all over the world has become a must.

Given the international approach of our course, the lessons are held entirely in English and, for each academic year, we will have the subject “Topics in Enology” to be given by an outstanding international invited lecturer.

 

Corso in Sustainable Viticulture and Enology UNICATT - Topics in Enology Kerry Wilkinson, Professoressa di Enologia presso l’Università di Adelaide, South Australia

For the forthcoming academic year (2024-2025) the course of Topics in Enology will be given, in presence, by Kerry Wilkinson, Professor of Oenology at the University of Adelaide, South Australia.

What makes the Course in Sustainable Viticulture and Enology truly competitive and formative is the complementation between classroom lessons and practical activities conducted outside.


Our course, in fact, benefits from excellent facilities, easily accessible from campus, such as an experimental cellar used for the training of students, where they have the opportunity to produce “their” wine, a new sensorial analysis laboratory and a small but precious experimental vineyard.

Students will also be given the opportunity to carry out an experimental degree thesis with direct participation in one of our currently active research projects. Click here to find an up-to-date list of topics (68 as a total!) available in 2024 and 2025 for your experimental thesis. Start to peer through!

Starting from 2024-2025 intake, SVE will offer a new and prestigious choice: a Double Degree (DD) program with ESA, Angers, France.
