Since the doors opened in 2003, College Cellars has been one of the few teaching wineries located in the United States. And, it’s not all that surprising to find a dedicated wine school in the heart of Washington’s wine country – the unique school is on the campus of Walla Walla Community College in the Walla Walla Valley. We sat down with Instructor of Enology Sabrina Bitz Lueck to talk everything wine.
Lueck says enology and viticulture are multi-faceted and there are lots of pieces to the puzzle. At College Cellars students manage six acres of vineyards and produce commercially available wines. This gives a hands-on approach to their two-year education program and students even get their name on all wine that is marketed for sale, Lueck says.
