About the Wine Research Centre

The Wine Research Centre has led wine research and education at UBC for more than two decades. In more recent years, a reimagining of the centre through an innovative collaboration paved the way for the creation of a dual-campus centre headquartered on the Okanagan campus.

Working across both campuses, we conduct cutting-edge research in enology, viticulture, management, and social sciences; provide academic and extended education and engage with industry and communities on the challenges of wine territory development.

We are dedicated to fostering cooperation between academic institutions, the wine industry sector, and communities around the world in a way that encourages growth with integrity and inclusivity. Our ethos is one of rigorous curiosity and open-minded collaboration while pursuing excellence in all that we do.
