Southwest Wine Center
The Southwest Wine Center (SWC) at Yavapai College
The premier academic center for Viticulture and Enology in the Southwest extends its mission to be the supporting center for growers and winemakers in the region. The Southwest Wine Center ensures a trained workforce for the regional wine industry, serves as a catalyst for data collection and information sharing, provides a sounding board for emerging entrepreneurs, and creates unique collaboration opportunities in the business community.
The Southwest Wine Center is taking the initiative in developing “best practices” for arid region wine making and grape growing. Our winery is designed to be a state-of-the-art LEED Certified facility, emphasizing efficiency in our buildings heating, cooling, lighting and insulation techniques. Going beyond sustainable certification, the building’s large roof will collect water for storage, making the Southwest Wine Center a Zero-Water Use Facility.
