This course mainly comprises a compulsory, intensive 5 day residential school, based at the Queensland College of Wine Tourism, and provides a practical introduction to winemaking through activities in the Queensland College of Wine Tourism winery and laboratories, and field trips to commercial vineyards and wineries. The winemaking activities to be undertaken include grape harvesting, grape processing (crushing, pressing, stabilisation, clarification, enzyme treatments, acidification), and initiation and monitoring of primary fermentation of white and red wines. In addition students will be guided through appropriate preparatory activities prior to the residential school and follow-up activities will include completion of a report on activities and outcomes. The practical experience in this course is set in context of relevant winemaking activities and relates to elements of the theoretical courses WIN1101 (Grape and Wine Production), WIN2102 (Wine composition, stability and analysis), WIN2204 (Wine Biochemistry), WIN2206 (Wine Microbiology), WIN3303 (Wine Production). It builds upon skills developed in WIN2201 (Wine Analysis Practice).
