First crush at UC Davis research winery

After three years of planning, the new teaching-and-research winery at UC Davis’ Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science is crushing its first grapes.

For would-be winemakers, the $15 million winery will provide some high-tech and hands-on experience before launching their careers.

If terms such as “automated electro-polished stainless steel fermentors” and “clean-in-place tanks” get you giddy, the The Sacramento Bee reports, this research facility is the perfect place to get nerdy in the name of wine.

The winery was also designed to be a model of sustainability, using solar power generation, recycled building materials and recycled rainwater to keep the winery especially environment-friendly. For more details, click here.
