Viticulture & Winemaking

Get a taste of what it's like to be at the centre of wine education at NMIT and connect with researchers and industry.

NMIT offers three different Certificate programmes and a Bachelor of Viticulture and Winemaking. The Certificate courses prepare you for work in cellar or vineyard operations, while the three-year Degree programme covers everything you need for a budding career as a winemaker or vineyard manager. In the vintage season alone Marlborough has over 8,000 jobs available, see the New Zealand Wine(external link) site for more information.

At NMIT students have the chance to grow their own grapes at the on-campus research vineyard, make their own wine in the research winery with a micro-vinification unit, practice wine analysis, and develop wine sensory analysis skills in the high spec sensory laboratory. 

With an unbeatable location and flexible study options to suit all learners, NMIT is an innovative place to start on the path to an exciting career in viticulture and winemaking. 

Upcoming programme intakes

Thanks to NMIT’s decision to run an unscheduled online viticulture and winemaking programme, Tash found the inspiration to follow her passion for wine.
