Napa Valley College is the site of the first bonded winery located on a community college campus in California. Awarded a winery bond in 2008, the NVC Winery Foundation operates the winery, which is fully integrated into the Viticulture and Winery Technology instructional program at NVC.
All NVC Estate wine produced is made from grapes grown on NVC's six-acre estate vineyard located on the NVC campus. Every aspect of the winemaking process is completed on the campus in the college's winery and cellar facilities.
The proceeds from the sale of NVC Estate Wines are used to support the educational mission of the NVC Viticulture and Winery Technology Department, directly assisting NVC to train future Napa Valley grapegrowers and winemakers.
