Following the decision of the Moscow State University’s Academic Council, a scientific and methodological center of viticulture and winemaking — Wine Lab — was established at the Black Sea branch of the educational institution. The Center will provide training in winemaking.
“The Center was created on the initiative of the Association of Winegrowers and Winemakers of the city of Sevastopol. The first course will be devoted to additional professional education in winery management. It will be launched in May,” told Ivan Kusov, head of the Black Sea branch.
If the Wine Lab proves to be successful, postgraduate courses will be established to prepare a wide range of professionals for the winemaking industry.
Pavel Shnets, Chairman of the Association of Winegrowers and Winemakers of Sevastopol, told that foreign experts in the production of wines were ready to come teach in Crimea. He also proposed to establish an educational vineyard in the center of Sevastopol.
