About us

The International Vintage Master, coordinated by ESA, was built in partnership with seven universities within the European Union, between 1998 and 2002. We have been accredited DNM (National Master Degree) since September 2003, and certified Erasmus Mundus for the first time in September 2005 again in September 2009.

In 2007, as part of the Erasmus Mundus program, new partnerships with South Africa, Switzerland and Chile were established, which allowed us to develop our collaborations both in terms of research and pedagogy.

The International Vintage Master is now a consortium of 12 universities around the world bringing together professors and researchers in viticulture, oenology, sociology and wine marketing.

This master course welcomes about 25 students from different nationalities.

This training in viticulture, oenology and wine marketing (wine terroirs and firms) combines technological, economic and marketing knowledge with case studies.
