Viticulture and Enology major in Integrated Plant Sciences
The Viticulture and Enology major in Integrated Plant Sciences (IPS) was created for students interested in wine-grape growing and winemaking, as well as contributing to critical research and development opportunities in the wine industry. This program offers the technical, scientific, and practical experience needed to gain the essential skills for producing high quality grapes and premium wines. It prepares students for successful careers in the wine industry in Washington and beyond.
WSU Tri-Cities offers excellent opportunities for students seeking knowledge and experience in the science of winemaking and grape production through our world class faculty, and is also the home of the research and teaching vineyard. Its close proximity to the WSU Research and Extension Center in Prosser (about a 20-minute drive), which has a long history of researching wine grapes and the best ways to grow them, make WSU Tri-Cities a prime and engaging location for students in the Viticulture and Enology academic program.
