NWGIC Core Mission

The National Wine and Grape Industry Centre (NWGIC) 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. NWGIC's impressive expertise in the form of its staff, and the alliance with Charles Sturt University, NSW Department of Primary Industry (DPI) and the New South Wales wine industry association (NSWWIA), is combined with excellent facilities and equipment to generate outstanding research and development. The inclusion of NSWWIA ensures that the research done at NWGIC is highly relevant to the Australian wine industry and that the transformation of scientific knowledge in actions and decision making tools to improve industry profitability and sustainability is a major priority.
