Student Resources

Agribusiness students

Several internships from the local industry are offered to students every year, as well as grants and scholarships.

Student Vineyard and Campus Winery

Our campus vineyard consists of 4 acres with more than 50 different varietals.  

Primary varietals (main region cultivars) are:

  • Pinot noir 
  • Chardonnay

Facilities are fully equipped with tractor and implements, Gator, etc. soon with greenhouse equipped for vine and tree propagation.

Our campus winery has an estimated capacity of 2000 cases and also fully equipped to perform all commercial winemaking activities.

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.

SPOTLIGHT

Amy Guerra

Amy Guerra
Agribusiness Student

"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."
