This weekâ€™s Wine Word of the Week is enology.
Official definition from Jancis Robinsonâ€™s The Oxford Companion to Wine:
Enology, or oenology, is the knowledge or study of wine, derived from the Greek oinos meaning â€˜wineâ€™. â€¦. Enology has been used as synonymous with wine-making and distinct from viticulture, which is concerned with vines.
Laymanâ€™s terms from Kori:
Enology is the study of winemaking.
