The Erasmus Mundus Master in Wine Tourism Innovation (WINTOUR) offers a truly integrated study program that takes advantage of the tourism and oenology expertise of three universities and regions of Europe: Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona, Spain), the University of Porto (Portugal) and the University of Bordeaux (France).
These universities are located in highly attractive touristic areas, recognized with the label of UNESCO Human Heritage, and have a long tradition in wine, producing specialty wines such as sparkling, fortified, aged red and sweet.
The academic program is structured over two years (four semesters) with 120 ECTS. The first three semesters are each taught in one university (30 ECTS at URV, 30 ECTS at UBx, 30 ECTS at UP) and the last semester is devoted to the Master Thesis and a professional internship, which is completed with one of the associated partners.
