• What is an Oenologist?
Oenologists are the professionals who supervise not only Viticulture and Enology production in the winery but also the storage, analysis, preservation, bottling and sale of wine. If Sommeliers are responsible for recommending and making sure that wine arrives with the final consumer in the best condition, Oenologists are responsible for producing the product.
