UC Davis Wine Executive Program: From Grape to Table
The World’s Premier Wine Industry Executive Education Program

In its 18th year, the UC Davis Wine Executive Program is uniquely designed to teach the fundamentals of winemaking and management skills necessary to be profitable in today’s challenging and dynamic wine industry.

Sessions are tailored to help industry leaders grow their businesses by expanding on such topics as building one’s financial acumen and expanding a company’s current marketing and branding strategies. In addition, participants will be exposed to the latest state-of-the-art technologies and processes for making and selling wine as demonstrated in the world’s first LEED platinum winery at the UC Davis Department of Viticulture and Enology.

Participants will develop relationships with other key wine industry leaders that will continue long after the program ends. Nearly 1,000 wine industry executives have attended this unique and informative program over the past seventeen years.

Registration Opens in August

“The Wine Executive Program is an excellent overview of the wine industry from Grape to Bottle. The presenters are top notch and engaging. The topics are extremely relevant to today’s challenges in the wine industry and I would recommend this program to anyone desiring insight into the extremely dynamic and complex industry”
