VINTAGE - Master International Vintage, Vine, Wine and Terroir management

The International Vintage Master’s degree seeks to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the wine industry, from soil to consumer. 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.

Established in 2002, this 2-year study programme is a joint collaboration between higher education institutions, bringing together various competencies in the field of viticulture, oenology and wine marketing on an international scale. The partner institutions are:
Ecole Supérieure d’Agricultures (Coordinator, Angers – France), Universitat Politècnica de València (Valencia – Spain), Szent István Egyetem (Budapest – Hungary), Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Piacenza – Italy), Universidade de Trás-Os-Montes e Alto Douro (Vila Real – Portugal), École d’Ingénieurs de Changins (Nyon – Switzerland), Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (Santiago – Chile) and Stellenbosch University (Stellenbosch – South Africa).

The International Vintage Master welcomes annually about 25 students from many different nationalities and various backgrounds.

This Master’s programme (120 ECTS) aims to develop internationally trained experts in the wine sector, with a double competency. From the study of wine terroirs to the analysis of consumer behaviour, the comprehensive curriculum combines scientific, technological, economic, organisational and marketing knowledge with field experience. 

The teaching is based on the scientific reliability of the consortium’s teams (full-time lecturers working in research, laboratories of international repute) and is closely linked with the professional world. The continuous changes and globalisation of the wine market have resulted in new needs for the wine industry. 

The International Vintage Master’s degree aims to train flexible and innovative executives and top managers with the necessary skills to play an active part in the enhancing of wines from the technical, strategic and commercial points of view at an international scale. Graduates of the Course will be employable at a manager level in European and international companies dealing with the wine sector, or can go for a PhD.
