Wine cellar worker training is focus of new Santa Rosa Junior college program

North Bay Business Journal

Santa Rosa Junior College has announced it will offer either a degree or a certificate in the job through its wine studies program. Students who pursue a certificate will be required to take only wine classes, while an Associate of Arts degree course path will include wine classes and general education classes.


In preparing participants for a job as wine cellar worker, the program focuses on the theory and practices used in the production of wine, including basic grape growing practices and vineyard decisions, steps in the winemaking process from harvest to bottling, basic wine lab analyses, and the use of winery production equipment.


“We are incredibly pleased to offer this new program. There is great demand for qualified wine cellar workers in the North Bay. Historically, cellar workers have come to us for training. Now they can leave with a certificate or degree to document their hard work,” said Kevin Sea, professor and coordinator of the SRJC Wine Studies Program.
