V&E Extension The mission of the UC Davis Department of Viticulture and Enology extension and outreach program is to keep California stakeholders informed about the latest in research and teaching. To meet our goal, UCD V&E Extension organizes and produces 10-12 educational programs each year, both on campus and at various locations around the state. University Extension / Continuing and Professional Education The University of California offers varied courses to the general public to assist in furthering their educational goals through UC Davis Extension, the university's outreach division. For nearly a half-century in collaboration with the Department of Viticulture & Enology’s faculty and staff, they have developed a number of excellent wine making and grape growing classes, brining world-class winemaking education courses to the general public. Newsletter The UCD V and E e-newsletter, covering Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis is published quarterly. Each issue brings you short articles featuring profiles of faculty, students, and, occasionally, alumni working in the wine industry. In each issue, we also cover extension programs (those that just occurred and those that are upcoming), we summarize one of our students’ required classes, we introduce new faces in the department, and we inform about accolades, honors, publications, and more!
