Surry Community College has the only licensed, bonded winery in the Southeast as part of a college educational program and the only program of its kind as a community college program on the East Coast. The college offers a degree, diploma and certificates in Viticulture and Enology Technology. Classroom instruction is supported by five acres of teaching vineyards and a state-of-the-art, bonded winery with a 25,000-gallon capacity where students gain hands-on experience with Surry Cellars wine – from grape to bottle.
We also offer a certificate in Sustainable Horticulture, which is the production and cultivation of plants in a manner that uses resources wisely and efficiently with a high regard given to the environment. Students learn in our greenhouses, campus landscape projects and take many field trips to agricultural destinations.
