WINE STUDIES AT SRJC IS FOR YOU!

In the world of wine, Sonoma County ranks among the premier wine production locations in the world. Sonoma County's winemakers and their products have dazzled consumers in the United States and around the globe as the wine industry has rapidly flourished in Sonoma County's renowned and spectacular wine country.

There's no better place for students to immerse themselves in wine studies than at Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC). The college is situated in the heart of the Sonoma County Wine Country. Wine Studies students enjoy hands-on learning at SRJC's Shone Farm, which includes 365 acres of vineyards, orchards, pasture, forest, and vegetable gardens. In this stunning outdoor laboratory overlooking the Russian River, students have an opportunity to harvest grapes in the Shone Farm vineyard and make wine at the Shone Farm Winery.

To support Sonoma County’s vital and successful wine industry, SRJC has developed a first-class Wine Studies Program, delivered by highly skilled and well-known members of the wine industry.  Wine Studies is a two-year program  leading to either an Associate in Science degree or a Certificate of Achievement in  on one of three areas of concentration:

SRJC'S SHONE FARM WINERY PRODUCES PREMIUM RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY WINE
29 March, 2018

Santa Rosa Junior College Shone Farm Winery was founded in 2008 and operates under the auspices of the Shone Farm Foundation, an auxiliary organization of the college. Located in the Warren G. Dutton Jr. Agriculture Pavillion in the Russian River Valley, the winery utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and winemaking procedures to ensure the production of premium wines indicative of the Russian River Valley appellation. The majority of the wines being produced are from estate grown grapes of Shone Farm. The Shone Farm Winery is committed to quality, and all wines must pass a rigorous review by a professional testing panel before being released for sale.

The wines are made by professional winemakers, with students learning the art of winemaking from crush pad to bottling.

Shone Farm has 84 acres of grapes that are sold to several Sonoma County premium wineries. In addition to commercial use, the vineyard also provides a venue for instruction. Students in the Viticulture Program spend time in the vineyard involved in various tasks; monitoring for pests and diseases, performing canopy management assessments, making crop projections for each commercial block of grapes, and pruning selected blocks.

We invite you to try the wines of Shone Farm and experience what we achieve when students and professionals winemakers come together to handcraft wine.
Cheers!
