Grape Science is the fall course in the Cold Climate Viticulture Series and will cover grape chemistry, harvesting, and basic wine processing.

The comprehensive four-session viticulture and enology program includes topics in vineyard establishment and management, grape and wine chemistry, and basic wine processing. The individual courses are designed to help growers with little or no previous grape-growing experience. Each session will provide seasonal skills needed to operate and manage a vineyard, and basic wine-making techniques. Hands-on experience in a vineyard, laboratory, and winery will be included.
