Enology and Viticulture
The Institute for Enology and Viticulture provides students with hands-on experience in winemaking, viticulture practices, and wine sales. To this end, the Institute has developed several acres of teaching vineyards where students actively participate in vineyard management and the growing of quality wine grapes used to support the teaching winery. In addition to the teaching vineyard, the Institute has created a state-of-the-art commercial teaching winery at COLLEGE CELLARS where students are responsible for winemaking and wine-related chemistry.
Courses in wine marketing are available and students have opportunities to promote College Cellars of Walla Walla wine at various wine industry events. Many courses are tailored to meet the specific needs of the wine industry in the Pacific Northwest. The Enology and Viticulture curriculum is reviewed by an advisory committee composed of local and regional industry members.
