HRTM11-100: Wine Studies

Description

Wine is a major agricultural export for Australia and an important industry for the country’s economy.  At an industry level, students will be introduced to the history and evolution of this exciting industry and the laws, policies and agreements that affect its production and distribution worldwide. At the product level, students will study the winemaking process and learn to distinguish among different types of viticultural sites to identify those best suited to premium wine production. The contribution that wine inventories make to hotel and restaurant profitability is also considered. A major component of this subject is a professional wine tasting program, which provides hands-on experience in evaluating a broad range of grape varieties and explores the relationship between wines with food.
