Vineyard and Winery

Student at Hancock Vineyard


The Allan Hancock College campus vineyard spans about four acres west of the campus, next to the College baseball and softball fields. Grapes from this vineyard are harvested to produce student-made wine. The revenue generated from wine and grape sales cover operational costs for the agribusiness program, vineyard, and winery. Additional vineyards are located in Los Alamos in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Wine is produced, bottled, labeled, and sold at the Allan Hancock College Winery located at the Santa Maria Campus in building O 211. This new 1,500-square-foot facility has an additional 2,800 square feet of outside work area and includes all the necessary equipment, such as a de-stemmer, various presses, a semi-automatic corker, a cold storage room, stainless steel tanks, oak barrels, and forklifts. The winery offers crucial hands-on training for future winemakers taking enology classes at the community college.
