Viticulture and Enology
Nearly 500 linear feet of materials on the growth and development of the wine industry
The University of California at Davis holds an extensive collection of materials pertaining to the growth and development of the wine industry. The papers of individual wine researchers, merchants, and historians, and the archives of wineries, trade associations, and governmental agencies are represented. Collections in this subject category focus on grape growing, wine making, marketing, and distributing wine and other fermented beverages.
Ephemeral collections are continually supplemented and include broadsides, posters, newsletters, pamphlets, scrapbooks, labels, and realia. There are no geographical, chronological, format, or language limits. Related materials can be found under the headings of Agricultural Technology and Food Processing and Manufacture, in the University Archives under the Department of Viticulture and Enology, and in the rare book collections of the California State Board of Viticultural Commissioners and of the Inglenook Winery.
