This Winemaking Certificate is an advanced online enology course that serves as a critical review of commercial winemaking principles and practices. The program provides a package of technical knowledge for professional winemakers and industry employees wanting to enhance their knowledge, as well as serious noncommercial winemakers looking to take their pastime to the professional level.
Commercial Winemaking Principles and Practices.
The Winemaking Certificate includes six progressive modules covering ground from grape to glass. Program topics range from a critical review of winemaking techniques, styles and traditions to advice on aging, stabilization, filtration, bottling, and shelf life optimization.
Portions of the curriculum focus specifically on winemaking in Indiana and the Midwestern and Eastern United States, but much of it is applicable to wineries anywhere in the world.
