Research within the wine science group is aimed at understanding the wine-making process and how it can be manipulated to improve the quality of wines.
With new research facilities on the Waite Campus based in the Wine Innovation Cluster, world-leading personnel and networks right around the globe conduct research that extends over the whole of the grape and wine value chain.
The wine education programs at The University of Adelaide are world renowned for excellence. First originating from the Roseworthy Agricultural College which was established way back in 1883 as the first agricultural college in Australia, the proud tradition continues today at the University’s Waite Campus in Adelaide. Our programs and students are supported by world-class facilities (Hickinbotham Roseworthy Wine Science Laboratory), scholarships and prizes and contributions from international experts made possible by the Walter, Carew and Richard Reynell Fellowship. Our internationally acclaimed wine degrees appear with pride in the offices of wine industry executives, winemakers and grapegrowers all around the world.
The head of the Wine Science Group is Professor Vladimir Jiranek
