A range of hands-on activities embedding career guidance activities in the classroom to strengthen the ability of teachers, parents and industry professionals to support students in exploring their strengths, interests and values and how these relate to the world of agricultural work – including roles across the wine sector.
Wine sector supply chain and careers card game (Years 7–8, 9–10)
Drawing from the paddock to plate concept, grape to glass is an inquiry-based approach using the journey of growing wine grapes (viticulture) to understand how agriculture (food and fibre) is managed in sustainable environments and the role of the grape and wine sector value chain to produce and market a product for domestic or export consumption. Students will gain an understanding of technologies and the careers involved in the supply chain of the wine sector.

Tim Thompson and his students make wine as part of an agriculture subject at their school. Join them as they show us all the steps that go into winemaking, from growing healthy grapevines to testing, harvesting, crushing and fermenting the grapes. We learn how wine is pressed, stored and bottled, and we visit a large Yarra Valley winery, which has a partnership with the school.
Discovering Australia’s wine regions (Years 9 – 10 | geography, science inquiry, business)
Released in 2022, this course provides a unique learning opportunity for students to explore the various wine regions across the country, understand the current industry challenges and practices, and gain insights into the impact of climate change and export markets. Designed to be a combination of digital and offline learning, this course is an excellent teacher resource to engage students in a range of activities and research opportunities.

Did you know?
  • There are laws to ensure that all wine producers use Australia’s ‘Geographical Indication’ (GI) system to clearly display the region the grapes for wine are produced in.
  • The GI system has been important in research, regulation, label integrity and in developing an understanding of the unique characteristics of each region’s climate and, most importantly, its grape varieties.
  • Australia’s GI system comprises 28 zones, 65 regions and 14 sub-regions.
