The Graduate Certificate in Global Wine Studies introduces you to the Australian wine industry and its role in culture and commerce of the global world wine industry. You will examine the role of the Australian Wine Industry within the context of the global wine trade discussing the size and location of the Australian Industry with emphasis on the new and emerging wine regions throughout our continent. Students will then trace the history and culture of the modern wine industry through the evolution of premium wine grape varieties and the global wine industry. The innovations in grape-growing and winemaking leading to development of the great wines of the world are explored from historical, cultural, economic and sensory perspectives.
The sensory and philosophical perceptions of wine quality will be explored to allow students to educate their palate to the sensory characteristics of major grape varieties and great wine styles of the world. Finally students will undertake an outstanding international educational experience through a field trip to the ultra-premium wine regions of France. On this field trip they will experience the international wine industry in situ and explore the evolving patterns of global interconnection within the wine industry together with its history, cultural and sensory diversity.
