The course is completed by the disciplines of defense and agricultural production, economics and management of agricultural enterprises, notions of law and the teachings of viticulture and enology. The course includes a training internship at companies in order to provide a valuable opportunity for direct contact with wine producers. Graduates will be able to effectively carry out technical tasks of management of primary production, refinement, ageing and distribution of wine products ensuring quality and healthiness. The general objective of the graduates’ functions is the improvement of wine production in Puglia and bordering regions for quantity, quality, reputation and sales price, ensuring, through the introduction of technical and/or process innovations, the environmental sustainability of all activities.
