The 2013 Class Nears Completion

Sonoma State Cellars (SSC) has been offered as a hands-on, MBA-level, wine business course that teaches students the ins and outs of running a wine business. This year, the Wine Business Institute Alumni Council (WBIAC) is leading the project and opening the release part to the public.

As a course, SSC provides lessons in the classroom and through field visits to leading North Coast wine operations. And, of course, with our bonded winery partner, Kokomo Winery, students – with the support of WBIAC – learn how to market and sell a current release.

This year’s release includes the inaugural addition of zinfandel and the fifth release of cuvee. Join us for an afternoon of wine tasting, food, live music, and bocce ball. The release party is on Saturday, June 20th from 11:00AM to 1:00PM at Kokomo Winery, located at beautiful Timber Crest Farms in Dry Creek Valley.

Tell us you’re coming to the party and get the event details.

Sonoma State Cellars, along with the Wine Business Institute Alumni Council, the Wine Business Institute, and the School of Business and Economics, support the safe and legal use of alcohol beverages. As an educational program focused on learning the business side of the wine industry, we emphasize the guidelines for responsible consumption and the risks of alcohol abuse. Please drink responsibly and know your own limits.
