Enology and viticulture students at Washington State University will soon be working in a virtual vineyard as part of an online teaching laboratory.

Masters student Kathryn House created the project to help future vintners put classroom knowledge to work. Among other industry aspects, students decide vineyard locations; which tests to determine soil quality and moisture holding capacity; pest management methods; types and locations of grape varieties to be planted; trellising systems, and a budget to manage.

While no substitute for hands-on work, students can appreciate relations between individual areas of study, develop communication skills, and practice decision-making that influences winery and vineyard management, traits demanded by area growers polled for the program.
