Viticulture and Oenology (Hons) from Plumpton College is designed to help students to develop their winemaking skills and gain a deeper understanding of the factors that affect the quality of wine production.
You will get to actively participate in the maintenance of our 10-hectare vineyards and in the production of our award-winning wine. During your course, you’ll cover all aspects of wine production and related biological sciences, including practical vinegrowing and winemaking, viticulture and oenology theory, wine sensory evaluation and wine analysis. In your final stage of your degree, you will also get to carry out an independent research project.
This course opens up a wealth of opportunities for you within the industry. You could choose to become a cellar manager, oenologist, research scientist, vineyard manager, wine educator or winemaker. Alternatively, you could choose to continue your studies to a higher level in Oenology and Viticulture related fields.
