World Class Research in Grape & Wine Science

NWGIC 

The National Wine and Grape Industry Centre conducts world-class research in grape and wine science, in the areas of plant pathology, vine physiology, fruit development, fruit and wine composition, sensory characteristics of wine, and consumer preference.

We generate outstanding research outcomes thanks to the impressive expertise of our researchers, excellent facilities and equipment, and our alliance with Charles Sturt University, NSW Department of Primary Industry, and the New South Wales wine industry association. We collaborate with commercial vineyards and wineries to ensure our research is highly relevant and improves profitability and sustainability in the Australian Wine Industry.
