Lincoln University

The University of Lincoln near Christchurch in the Canterbury region of South Island, New Zealand, came into being in 1990 by splitting off from the University of Canterbury. However, its origins go back to 1878, when an agricultural school was founded in Lincoln. The main objectives of the Centre for Viticulture and Oenology are to improve quality through a better understanding of the links between the environment, viticulture and winemaking, and to provide training in vineyard management, winemaking and marketing. The scientific focus is on the two varieties Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, taking into account the special climatic conditions in New Zealand. The social and cultural aspects of wine production and consumption will also be researched. Various courses of study are offered in viticulture and winemaking. The highest level is a four-year course leading to a Bachelor of Viticulture and Enology Honours.
