The Enology and Viticulture Technology Program teaches basic theory, practices, and processes of wine
grape growing and winemaking from vineyard site selection through planting and tending vines, harvest,
fermentation, and aging to packaging of the final product. Students can select additional courses that
allow for specialization in wine production, winery management, or vineyard management to prepare for
work in the vineyard and wine industry. Several courses, referred to as blended, include “camps”
conducted at regional vineyards, wineries and the Harrisburg or Gettysburg Campuses to provide students
with hands-on instruction and experience in the classroom. Students participate in internships at
approved wineries or vineyards to gain real-life experience in these industries. The complete program is
offered through online and blended formats and is coordinated through the Harrisburg Campus. Students
must be 21 years of age in order to participate in wine evaluation sessions.
Graduates are prepared for careers in the vineyard and winery industry, including positions in
winemaking, vineyard management, quality control, production management, and tasting room
management. Emphasis in the coursework is placed on growing and winemaking conditions on the East
Coast to meet the needs of this rapidly growing field.
Courses are taught by faculty who are recognized leaders in the field, who combine teaching skills with
practical hands-on winemaking, grape growing and analytical experience in wineries, vineyards and wine
laboratories across the country.
