Viticulture Technology Associate Degree
The Viticulture online program through VESTA at Texas State Technical College contains courses designed to cover the agricultural, science, math and practical skills necessary to enter the grape growing industry as an entrepreneur or skilled worker. The program also offers professional training for those already working in the industry. Viticulture students will receive the information and training required to establish and maintain a commercial vineyard in central Texas, as well as focus on specific topics such as varietal selection, training, pruning, soil preparation and pest management.
The Viticulture program also features realistic, hands-on field experiences at area vineyards and at TSTC’s on-campus test vineyard which focus on the principles and best practices of maintaining a vineyard through seasonal changes.
