The Master in Viticulture and Enology aims at addressing how vineyard and winery innovation is quickly becoming part of the Italian viticulture tradition. Italy is now the largest wine producer in the world and boasts the greatest variety in terms of cultivars.

The peculiarities of Italian viticulture and opportunity to maintain a leading role in the field are today bound by the ability to introduce sustainable innovation without losing its well-known appeal.

Students on the programme will:

  • Acquire a solid methodology and knowledge suitable to address innovation issues in vineyard and winery;
  • Achieve specific skills for new canopy management techniques suitable to mitigate undesired climate-related effects, new sustainable approaches for pest and disease control, precision viticulture and enology;
  • Develop the ability to diagnose limiting factors occurring in vineyards and wineries and to produce suitable solutions;
  • Learn to pro-actively take part in discussions dealing with viticulture and enology topics.
