The Winery, Brewery, and Food Pilot Facility is a key research facility for the Viticulture and Enology program as well as a demonstration of the best practices in sustainable design and processes in the industry. This world-class facility combines laboratory and classroom spaces with a fully-functional winery and brewery.
