PVCC students reap fruits of local viticulture labors


For close to four years Piedmont Virginia Community College has used its viticulture and enology programs to school students in the ways of winemaking.

But this year, for the first time, a class is taking students, hands-on, from the vine to the wine — five cases of Cabernet Franc, per student, to be exact.

Roe Allison is a student in the Custom Crush class. On Thursday, Allison was in the Free Union area at Tra Vigne vineyards, where he and close to a dozen others walked along the rows of vines snipping grapes into plastic yellow bins — roughly 80 in all.
