The Northwest Wine Studies Center is a leading wine industry resource that provides continuing education and degree programs in all aspects of wine, from grape to glass. The center emphasizes strong alliances with the Northwest wine industry, associated educational institutions, and the community. The Center is located in Salem, Oregon, on the Eola campus of Chemeketa Community College. Salem is the state capital and is centrally located in the middle of state’s largest AVA, the Willamette Valley.
The Northwest Wine Studies Center is the home of Chemeketa Cellars, the student-run winery of the Wine Studies program at Chemeketa Community College. The Center houses the tasting room for Chemeketa Cellars, and is open to the public for tours, tasting and wine sales. When the Center is not in use for educational purposes, the contemporary design and majestic views make its conference space a popular private event venue.
