This course is designed in terms of production technology with a strong practical relevance (in-house). In addition, the curriculum contents are coordinated in the connection of viticulture and oenology. Specifically, this means that the students produce the grapes themselves and process them further into wine.

The students work in teams in a specific vineyard (UFT, Tulln) and together make wine and oenological decisions on the production of the grapes, grape processing and wine making and put them into practice.

Under guidance concrete topics are first presented in the seminar room, discussed and discussed, then directly in the vineyard (UFT Tulln) wine laboratory (UFT Tulln) wine cellar (HBLA Klosterneuburg) implemented.

The lecture viticulture winter is based on the lecture viticulture and viticulture exercises offered in the SS.
