Washington State Education Consortium

Washington State offers Viticulture and Enology education programs that are spread across the state and offered in 7 different higher education colleges and universities. The programs are diverse and collaborative, and most have articulated courses and degrees. With over 900 wineries and over a quarter of a million tons of Vinifera wine grapes produced, the state has grown to rank 2nd in wineries and grape production. This important industry is supported by numerous education programs. Interns, well-trained and knowledgeable production and agriculture students and graduates are needed to match this growth. The consortium is made up of all two and four year institutions offering classes to and for the Washington state grape and wine industry.
