From ground to glass. You’ll learn all aspects of the wine industry, studying everything from the soil to the tasting room. We’ll cover marketing, sensory and chemical analysis, distribution and compliance.
Savor hands-on experience. Students of the Wine and Viticulture program spend dozens of hours in the vineyard taking care of grape vines, as well as in the winery making wine for our fully licensed and bonded commercial teaching winery, Lake Michigan Vintners. The teaching winery is housed in a new state-of-the-art facility, one of the finest of its kind in the country.
Raise a glass to your future. Our program is designed to develop a professional class of vineyard managers, winemakers, enologists, and entrepreneurs to power the growth of the local and regional wine industry.
