New BS For Wine
We tend to think of U.C Davis in California, as well as Fresno State, as being the premier institutions of higher eduction when it comes to wine. And they really are. But they aren’t they only ones in the United States and it appears that another prestigious university is getting into the wine and grape game.
Cornell University has announced they will begin a four-year undergraduate program that will confer a degree on viticulture and enology. Cornell will certainly serve the very vibrant New York State and eastern seaboard wine industries. In New York State alone the wine and vineyard industries generate more than $1 Billion in annual sales as well as employing 18,000.
Good for Cornell!!
