Awesometown Vines

College of Canyons

Have you heard about the new vineyard in Valencia? College of the Canyons recently installed a vineyard that includes high-quality California Zinfandel grape vines, donated by Remo Belli Vineyards in Paso Robles.

On February 1, 50-year-old vines were planted to create a unique learning experience for the Culinary Arts and Wine Studies students at the campus.

As well as being a part of the college’s classroom curriculum, the vineyard will sell portions of the harvest to local winemakers to assist with the college’s annual budget and to help with operations costs.

The initial harvest is slated for fall 2015.

Good luck College of the Canyons on your new vineyard adventure!
