Viticulture and Enology (B.Sc.)

Innovative robotics in the vineyard, the most modern production processes as well as traditional techniques in the cellar and the direct transfer of research findings in the practice characterize the degree program. Budding enologists receive the basic tools for the growing and development of high quality wines as well as their sales. Through many internships and projects they will have the opportunity to gain career-relevant experience. The expertise in organic viticulture in Geisenheim as well as in vine cultivation and climate change research provides the students with a real increase in knowledge – and so does the international network.
