MWBM-530: The New World--Southern Hemisphere

Credits 3
Understanding the history, laws, terroir, viticultural and vinicultural techniques, along with focused tastings of classic varieties provides the template for understanding any wine growing region. The consistent application of this template in the examination of the Southern Hemisphere, Asia and the Levant wine regions enables students to identify unique the aspects of the wine industry for each country and discuss their relevance in the global wine market. Through in-depth tastings, lecture, guest speakers and class discussion, this class explores the reasons for the significant success and the tremendous potential of these wine regions. Emerging regions and varieties are discussed, along with pathways to future global success for each country, as well as design and wine selection considerations for wine programs featuring Southern Hemisphere wines.
