The Viticulture and Enology concentration is designed to give students a background in food crop production with a focus on grapes and their processing into wine. Students gain practical experience through required internships in grape production and winemaking. This is accomplished via one or more internships at a winery and/or vineyard. Students take background courses in science and pest identification and management as well as food safety and plant nutrition. Students completing the concentration have the opportunity to enter the industry as an assistant grower or winemaker.
