Viticulture and Enology Library

Grape leaves in vineyard.

“To serve Fresno State, the grape, wine, and raisin industries, and the public through access to research and information promoting the understanding and development of the disciplines of viticulture and enology.”

— Our Mission Statement

The Viticulture and Enology Library is a collection of the Fresno State Library, and is supported through funding from the Viticulture and Enology Alumni Association and the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology.

Our library is located in the Vincent E. Petrucci Viticulture building. The building is named after Petrucci, founder of the viticulture and enology programs at Fresno State. The library supports and continues Petrucci’s legacy of excellence in academics, research, and extension in the heart of California’s Central Valley.

Library resources reflect the diversity of our patron community, with materials generated by the Department of Viticulture and Enology, by public and private research institutions and associations, and by other resources released regionally, nationally, and globally.

For those looking for research resources, we have prepared a subject guide just for you, our online Viticulture and Enology Research Guide.
