Welcome to the winery at Napa Valley College. This is the very first winery located on a community college campus in California to be bonded and licensed to produce and sell wine.
The Napa Valley College Winery Foundation was awarded the bond for the winery in September of 2008. The operation of the winery is fully integrated into the Viticulture and Winery Technology (VWT) instructional program at Napa Valley College. For information on VWT classes, please see the program page link in the left menu options. All of the wine we produce is made from grapes grown on our 6 acre vineyard located on the Napa Valley College Campus. Every aspect of the winemaking process is completed on the campus in our own winery and cellar. Our students experience every aspect of the process from work in the vineyard to the marketing and sale of the wine. You could say that our wine is touched by more hands than at any other winery.
The Napa Valley Vintners Association and Trefethen Family Vineyards along with many other donors have helped Napa Valley College build a premier winery operation. The high quality wines we produce are a reflection of the community commitment to education and to Napa Valley College. We are grateful for everyone's participation in helping us produce a fine collection of wines.
