Wine Science

Do you have dreams of growing your own grapes or producing some wine in Burgundy, Margaret River or the Granite Belt? Do you want to be an important part of an exciting and growing industry? Dream no more.

  • USQ's Bachelor of Science major in Wine Science looks at wine science, viticulture, wine making and wine appraisal. You also have the opportunity to study a second major in biology, sustainable development or business studies.
  • It's not all theory in the classroom. You will receive practical training and attend Residential Schools at USQ's Queensland College of Wine Tourism (QCWT) which is situated right in the heartland of the Granite Belt Wine District in Stanthorpe. Residential Schools include activities in commercial vineyards and wineries, and the Sensory Analysis Residential School will see you participate as a steward and associate judge in a major regional wine show.
  • Industry placement is also a component, so you will have hands-on experience within the wine industry.

 Before long, you too might be making prize-winning wine like USQ wine technology student Peter McGlashan from Ridgemill Estate winery or Anthony Rametta from Mason Wines.
