The network was born in 2010 from a desire to develop and extend the oenology and viticulture field with academics, research centres and industrial partners to the international level (over 55 partners all around the world).

It is coordinated by the University of Bordeaux - Institut des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin (France), and is the first and unique international network in oenology and viticulture.

Welcome to Oenoviti

The ŒNOVITI INTERNATIONAL network and the ŒNODOC program enable academic and industrial partners to come together to address the research challenges in œnology and viticulture. Emphasis is given to the set-up of joint projects and on student mobility. Several thematics are already dealt with (climate,change, quality of grapes and wines, biotechnologies, etc.). Ten doctorate students benefit from the ŒNODOC program; they will thus take advantage of the various skills existing in the universities laboratories and the R&D departments of the partner industries. I am particularly happy to be able to contribute to this action in the name of the University of Bordeaux.
