What We Do

The National Wine and Grape Industry Centre generates scientific knowledge through research in the fields of viticulture and oenology. The results of our research:

  • Advance wine science through scientific publications and presentations for other researchers
  • Informs the content of Charles Sturt University's wine science courses
  • Provides the basis for the content of our resources for industry and NSW DPI training courses

The NWGIC supports the wine industry directly through:

  • Coordinating engagement activities Australia-wide
  • Development of technologies for grape and wine production
  • Offering research training opportunities for students of Charles Sturt University


The foundation of our research strategy is based on collaboration with the Australian Wine Industry through regional commercial vineyards, to advance viticultural production and winemaking systems.



Charles Sturt University is one of Australia's leading educators in the grape and wine sciences. Knowledge and expertise derived from our research is rapidly integrated into Charles Sturt courses, which train the next cohort of industry professionals.



We are a recognised leader in promoting the application of research within the Australian wine sector. Our community engagement programs and partnerships support industry through training and resources that can be used in the field.
