Grow your wine business knowledge.

Scholarship information for the 14-15 academic year now available.


At Sonoma State's Wine Business Institute, we've spent decades learning the global industry that's in our backyard.

Founded as a partnership between the university and the wine industry, we were the first in the United States to offer an undergraduate degree (since 1998), an MBA since 2008), and most recently an Executive MBA (since 2012) focused exclusively on the business aspects of the wine industry. Today, our full slate of degree and seminar programs answers the demands of full-time students, working professionals, winery owners, and those aspiring to be part of the wine industry. With our online certificate, or knowledge is now accessible wherever you are.

Our faculty are globally respected teachers, researchers, and seasoned industry professionals. Our network is broad and our relationships deep. Our alumni are industry leaders. Our location - second to none. 

Join us.
