The Erasmus Mundus Master on Wine Tourism Innovation (WINTOUR) offers a truly integrated study program that takes advantage of the know-how in Tourism and Oenology of three universities and regions of Europe. Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona, Spain), University of Bordeaux (France) and University of Porto (Portugal). These universities are located in highly attractive touristic areas, recognized with the label of UNESCO Human Heritage, and have a long tradition on wine, producing specialty wines such as sparkling, fortified, aged red and sweet.
The objectives of the WINTOUR Programme are:
To prepare broadly trained and highly adaptable and qualified professionals in the tourism and wine industries to promote innovative wine tourism developments that will generate added value through the increased income and recognition of this sector.
To provide future professionals with multi-disciplinary and multi-sectorial knowledge and training so as to increase their understanding of winemaking and tourism management.
To promote high-quality practical training in entrepreneurship and company management by involving the students in internships in the non-academic sector.
To ensure the effective integration and networking of students within the socio-cultural and professional environment of the places where they will receive their training.
