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 pecularities of Italian viticulture and chances to maintain a leading role are today bound to the ability to introduce sustainable innovation without losing its well-known appeal.

Learning objectives

The main goals of the program are:

● To acquire solid methodology and knowledge suitable to address innovation issues in vineyard and winery

● To achieve specific skills for new canopy management technique suitable to mitigate undesired climate-related effects, new sustain- able approaches for pest and disease control, precision viticulture and enology

● Develop the ability to diagnose limiting factors occurring in vine- yard and winery and to produce suitable solutions

● Learn to pro-actively take part in discussions dealing with viticulture and enology topics.

Career opportunities & professional recognition

The Master’s qualification in ‘Viticulture & Enology: innovation meets tradition’ will open up professional opportunities in the fields of Viticulture and enology chain; wine marketing and distribution; restaurants; large scale retail trade and freelancing.

A class that makes a difference

The Master in Viticulture & Enology will be comprised of international students and Cattolica’s domestic students.

Faculty & teaching staff

● Dr. Matteo Gatti - Research Assistant

● Prof. Gabriele Canali - Associate Professor

● Dr. Fabrizio Torchio - Research Assistant

● Prof. Stefano Poni - Full Professor

● Dr. Milena Lambri - Research Assistant

● Prof. Vittorio Rossi - Full Professor

● Dr. Emanuele Mazzoni - Research Assistant

Partner companies

Here are just a few names of prestigious wine estates that gave their preliminary acceptance in hosting internships: Mossi, Tenute Ruf- fino, Barone Ricasoli, Santa Margherita, Sella e Mosca, Mezzaco- rona, Contratto, Ca’ Del Bosco, Zonin, Res Uvae, Marchesi Mazzei, Cavalieri di Malta, Pico Maccario, and Marramiero.

Can I learn Italian while studying?

An intensive Italian course will be available to international students for the duration of the Master in Viticulture & Enology: innovation meets tradition.

Are there internships opportunities?

Students will need to carry out a mandatory internship for the duration of at least 450 hours (i.e. 18 ECTS) in a farm/wine estate/ institution.

A final exam is scheduled including a case study discussion and/or experimental activity carried out during the internship.

Can I work while studying?

Non-EU students entering Italy on a VISA are permitted to work part-time (20 hours per week).

Curriculum

● Basics in Viticulture, Enology and Plant Phatology

● Vineyard variability: traditional and precision approaches

● Topics in wine-marketing

● Enhancing the wine quality: innovation in monitoring and controls

● Applied grapevine eco-physiology

● Advances in enology

● Disease and pest management toward a sustainable viticulture

● Seminars on sustainable pesticides use and genetic traceability will also be provided

ECTS of each course include also practical activities, wine tasting and field visits.

Scholarships

Scholarships will be available and assigned on a merit basis and will cover 30% of the tuition fee.

Viticulture & Oenology: the science of grapegrowing and winemaking

This masters degree course consists of a curriculum specialising in cool-climate wine production, climate change effects on viticulture, terroir and sparkling wine. It also includes opportunities to visit other wine-producing areas in Europe. The Wine Department staff have considerable international expertise and research experience, and a brand new Wine Research Centre was completed in March 2014. This combination of experienced staff and modern research facilities will enable students to access an outstanding Masters-level education.

Course structure:

The programme aims to enable students to develop a deep and systematic understanding of wine science (oenology) and related disciplines, and then apply this knowledge to make viticultural and oenological decisions in complex circumstances.

Areas of study:

Students will be required to attend a two-week intensive course in vinegrowing and winemaking at the start of the programme.

The first semester comprises of three modules which enable students to gain and apply knowledge and understanding of current research in grapevine physiology, wine chemistry, biochemistry, and microbiology.

The second semester focuses on climate & terroir and sparkling wine. Students wishing to complete with the Post-Graduate Diploma in Viticulture & Oenology may elect to complete a dissertation and end their studies at this point. Students who intend to study for the full Masters degree will normally take an in-depth research methods module prior to commencing their Masters project.

The third semester is designed to allow students to complete their Masters project, which can be undertaken in the newly opened UK Wine Research Centre, or in another suitable location.

Career and progression opportunities:

This programme enables students to gain advanced skills and knowledge in vinegrowing and winemaking. It therefore prepares them for careers which require the application of a high level of technical knowledge and the exercise of a considerable degree of responsibility. These positions include Vineyard Manager, Viticultural

Consultant, Winemaker and Wine Quality Controller for the wine trade, and will also give the opportunity to continue post-graduate education. Students can also progress towards the achievement of a Doctor in Philosophy (PhD) qualification in related subjects. There is a high demand for these skills, not just in the UK, but also in emerging wine-producing countries who are seeking staff with a truly international approach to the subject and a strong understanding of the requirements of international markets like the UK.
