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

Jose Alvarez

Jose Alvarez
Agribusiness Student

"I feel lucky to have discovered the agribusiness program at Allan Hancock College. The faculty and staff are so helpful and encouraging. With their help I realized how much I want to work in the wine industry and one day own my own winery. The facilities in the new Industrial Technology Complex are top of the line. I can basically be a part of the process of planning, growing and marketing wine on campus. Not many community colleges offer their students the same opportunities."
