Wine Rows

Our Vision and Leadership

Located in the heart of California wine country and created through a partnership between the university and the wine industry, this is the first and only program in the United States to focus exclusively on the business aspects of the wine industry.

We invite you to explore our programs, meet our community, view our faculty research, and - of course - join us in our work.
