Alumni Wine Program

UC Davis is home to one of the premier wine programs in the world with 80 percent of wine makers throughout the globe having a tie to UC Davis.

The UC Davis Alumni Wine Program is the ONE program that allows alumni and members of the general public to experience the fruits of our labor and have a unique connection to UC Davis and our rich network of our alumni wine makers.

Through lively wine tastings, engaging wine and food pairing events, and educational speaking events, the UC Davis Alumni Wine Program provides all members of the UC Davis community with a wine experience they won't soon forget.
