The first students who will earn certificates in winemaking, or enology, from Texas A&M University, College Station, have uncorked their first bottles.
The enology class began working with wine in September as the university launched the certificate program, said Dr. Andreea Botezatu, enology specialist in College Station.
“Some of the students who presented their bottles and work processes this November will eventually join a rapidly growing wine industry in Texas,” she said. “So far the state has issued about 400 winery permits, and many regions, especially in West Texas and the Hill Country, are conducive to producing excellent grapes and wines.”
