Viticulture and Enology Research Guide

This guide includes useful resources for research in grape growing and wine making


The V.E. Library consists of historic and contemporary periodicals, books, conference proceedings, pamphlets and brochures, research reports, and theses.  These cover the topics of viticulture and enology, as well as general agriculture, ag business and marketing, soil science, molecular and micro-biology, chemistry, pest management, and sustainable and organic farming.

The collection is open to students, staff, and faculty of California State University, Fresno, industry, and the general public for free (for more information on how to obtain a community borrower's card, see here).
