Viticulture and Enology Certificate Programs

The 1.5-year-long online certificate programs in Viticulture and Enology are professional, non-credit programs offered through WSU Extension. They are open to anyone who is seriously interested in working in the wine industry – growing grapes and/or commercial winemaking.  The program is science based and college chemistry and biology courses are strongly recommended. Participants in Enology are required to write a business plan for a winery.

After reading about the programs below, you can put your name on the wait list by clicking here.

Those currently working in the Washington State Wine Industry have priority status for enrollment. If you currently work in the WA wine industry please contact Theresa Beaver at tbeaver@wsu.edu after putting your name on the wait list. However, due to the success of the program and the WA wine industry,  the priority list of wine professionals in WA State is also very long.
