US: Students unveil Cal Poly wine
The Wine and Viticulture programme at California's Polytechnic State University has bottled its first vintage of Cal Poly brand wine.
Wines include a Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a red blend. Students grew the grapes on campus vineyards, using the same type of equipment found in small wineries, and a custom-crush facility in San Luis Obispo, where the campus is located.
California Polytechnic students were also involved in market research, Website development and public relations, and the wines will be released next year for distribution online and locally. Proceeds from the sales will fund the expansion of the three-year-old multi-disciplinary programme into one of the largest in the US, allowing students to specialise in food science and nutrition, agribusiness or crop science.
