Pre-requisite: WIN1101


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 determination of harvest date and vineyard management during the harvest season through activities in the Queensland College of Wine Tourism vineyard facilities, and field trips to local commercial vineyards. The activities to be undertaken include determining optimal time for harvest through grape berry chemical testing and Berry Sensory Assessment (BSA), and late season vineyard management. 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 viticultural activities, and relates to elements of the theoretical courses WIN1101 (Grape and Wine Production) and WIN2205 (Viticultural Principles).
