Definizione

The study or science of wine and wine making. 1

Nota

Enology, also spelled as oenology, is the study of wines and wine making, from the moment vines are planted to the best way to store wine bottles for long cellaring. [...] 2
As a discipline, enology is quite ancient. Humans have been making wines for thousands of years, and people have been documenting the process right along with them. [...]
Oenology is distinct from other more practical aspects of wine making, such as vine growing and grape harvesting, typically covered under viticulture.
Oenology covers topics as varied as yeast and microbacterial action in fermentation to wine tasting and marketing. 3

Contesto

Oenology has been used as synonymous with wine-making and distinct from viticulture, which is concerned with vines. 4
