The Program

The objective of the master course is to help students develop both technical and marketing skills on an international scale and to acquire in-depth knowledge in the fields of viticulture, oenology, terroir and wine marketing (wine terroir and firms).

The Ecole Supérieure d’Agricultures in Angers supervises the Vintage Master’s degree and co-delivers the National Master’s Degree in partnership with the University of Angers.

This 4 semesters course program leads to a Degree of Master of Science (MSc) or French DNM, but also to double degrees or conjoint degrees.

To help students meet these requirements, the teaching approach is based on close links between teachers in the partner universities and professionals in the wine sector, so that it can answer the needs of today’s global wine market.

Professionals play an active part in the course and case studies enable students to address current issues in the wine sector and to start defining their own professional project.

    • Analysing training systems for producing quality grapes,
