About the content

Open Wine University is the viticulture and wine university open to all.

Created in 2015 by the University of Burgundy, the MOOC OWU1 was a pioneer in the field of viticulture and wine. Today, this MOOC returns with the version OWU2, including new content and activities, all fully available in four languages: French, English, Spanish and Chinese.

During this five-week course, participants will discover the many facets of wine.

After a few reminders on basic concepts, we will be asking whether wine is threatened by climate change, diseases or pests, and then we will explore the make-up of soils and how wine is made. Next, we will look at how ‘terroir’ develops and is promoted. Before the wine is ready to be served, we'll need to look at bottling and aging. We will be looking at wine economy and history. Finally, we will discover that wine communication is a world in its own right.
