Oenology is the study of wine and wine-making, generally taught as a science class. It is separate from but related to viticulture, or the study of agriculture used to raise and harvest grapes for use in wine. If you're interested in developing a greater understanding of what goes into producing one of the world's favorite beverages, Varsity Tutors can refer you to a knowledgeable Oenology tutor who can help you reach your goals.
Here are some of the topics you may review during Oenology tutoring sessions:
- Identifying the Flavor Profiles Offered by Various Grapes
- The Role of Microorganisms in Wine-Making
- The Nutritional Requirements of Yeast and How to Manipulate Its Activity Level
- Proper Wine Storage Techniques
Studying wine has the rather pleasant side effect of tasting wine, as you cannot understand Oenology without sampling some of the product. Your Oenology tutor may guide wine tastings by pointing out what you should be looking for in a wine. They may have you swoosh the wine and then spit the wine out afterward just to get a sense of what the flavors are in the wines that you should be learning.
