Viticulture, Enology & Horticulture Home
The wine industry in California enjoys an international reputation. The Livermore Wine Country is a thriving wine region in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sharing the picturesque canyons and ridges of the area with outposts of suburbia, the welcoming sight of vines and tasting rooms defines the quality of life in the Valley. The Livermore Valley is one of California's oldest wine regions and played a pivotal role in shaping California's wine industry. Attracted to the rich winemaking tradition, climate, soil and geography, new winemakers and vineyardists are working alongside fifth generation winegrowers to create a Livermore wine renaissance.
Program options in the Viticulture and Winery Technology Program are designed to prepare students for careers in the wine industry. Students are also able to pursue their studies in either of two tracks: Viticulture (grape growing) or Enology (wine making) by taking a series of production-oriented courses.
