Wine & Viticulture Technology

Wine making is serious business in Michigan. With 107 wineries and a $300 million economic impact, this growing industry is ripe to provide long and fruitful careers.

As the region’s first and only commercial teaching winery, we turned to local employers to tell us what students need to know to succeed. As a result, our curriculum will teach you everything from growing grapes through sales, marketing, and distribution. Though viticulture requires a lot of science and you’ll definitely need to hit the books, you’ll spend lots of time working hands-on in our commercial-sized facility and at local wineries. That means you’ll already know and have proven yourself to local employers when it’s time to look for a job! If you love agriculture and science and want to contribute to Michigan’s growing reputation as one of the nation’s hottest wine destinations, an Associate in Applied Science in Wine and Viticulture Technology might be for you!
