“A friend and I recently purchased a vineyard in Mendoza, Argentina and have begun the process of growing grapes and making wine. Despite our love of wine, neither of us had hands on experience, prompting me to attend UC Davis’ Wine Executive Program in hopes of acquiring a broad foundation in all aspects of the craft. I was not disappointed. Not only were my expectations exceeded, I also developed a network of leading professionals that will endure for years to come. It was one of the most energizing and productive weeks I have ever spent.”
“I would recommend this course to anyone with interests in the wine business. The curriculum was fast moving and informative. It provided a look at many of today’s pertinent industry trends, our challenges, and exciting new and future innovations.”
“The UC Davis Wine Executive program was a great experience on several levels. It served as a great introduction to the wine industry as a whole. The materials were well presented and encompassing of where the wine industry is today and where it will be in the future. The best aspect of the program was the diversity of the attendees, getting to meet and interact with individuals from all areas of the industry was invaluable.”
“The Wine Executive course is a great course offering a higher level overview of Vineyards, Winemaking, Finance, and Sales and Marketing that benefits people from all areas of the business. Personally I was most impressed with the finance talks, as these offered a different perspective to traditional winery and vineyard accounting. The course was also a great way to network with other industry professionals that are also interested in developing their skills in new areas.”
“Most of my time is so focused only on winemaking and vineyards. This was the perfect opportunity to shed light on a lot of questions I had on the Finance, Sales, and Marketing side. In addition, the program included the most updated technology and research in winemaking and vineyard management. This conference was incredibly well organized with some of our industries top tier educators and professionals in each of those fields as the instructors.”

From the marketing and brand development, to accounting and economic sustainability, to the enology and viticulture components, all areas were well covered and vastly increased my efficiency and ability to develop our products to a higher level. I would absolutely recommend this course for anyone who is serious about progressing their abilities in the wine industry.”
