The Centre for Viticulture and Oenology acts as a focus for interdisciplinary research on wine, from soil to glass, at Lincoln University.

The objectives of the Centre are to:

  • Become an internationally recognised centre for research associated with Pinot noir
  • Create research synergies and enhance research output through an interdisciplinary approach to viticulture and wine-oriented research
  • Develop expertise in research on the social and cultural aspects of wine production and consumption
  • Increase value to the New Zealand wine industry through improved understanding of the relationships between environment, viticultural practices and wine quality
  • Provide the expertise required by New Zealand as a producer of high quality wine by training people with innovative vineyard management, wine-making and wine business skills.
