AHC Viticulture and Enology Club
The Allan Hancock College Viticulture and Enology Club supports students who want
to learn more about wine appreciation and grape growing. The club coordinates winery
tours and vineyard events throughout the year.
This is an excellent opportunity for members to help maintain vines during the growing
season, harvest fruit and oversee the winemaking process from start to finish.
The AHCVE Club is a network between people who want to learn more about viticulture
and enology and those who can help educate others on the subject as well as a fun
opportunity to take part in an occasional tour or vineyard work day.

"I've enjoyed the wine courses here at Hancock. I have gained a better understanding and knowledge of the industry, specifically in the enology program. I hope to transfer to Cal Poly to major in ag business. The effort and partnership between our professors, the industry, and the universities make Hancock the perfect pathway for the full-time student or individual who wants to be part of the wine industry."
