TJ RODGERS RESEARCH AND TEACHING WINERY
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. in California donated the most technologically advanced fermentation system in the world. Its 192 stainless-steel fermentation vessels, manufactured by Spokane Industries, are individually temperature controlled, continuously monitor sugar concentration, and automatically mix wine on individual schedules. The fermentation vessels are connected by wireless monitoring systems that provide real-time data to a central computer, allowing the winemaker to track and record all fermentations simultaneously.

Port of Benton Winery Analytical Lab
This lab includes five sensory evaluation booths, each equipped with a red light to obscure wine color, and a sample preparation area.
Boswell Family Foundation—Cooperages 1912 Solutions Group Gas Chromatography Olfactometry Laboratory
The gas chromatographs in this laboratory allow humans to become detectors. They can isolate one or a combination of aromas and safely puff them out in front of an individual’s nose to test which ones they can accurately identify or to help discover new aroma compounds.
