Woodhall III Vineyard was donated to OSU in 1987. In 2015, renovations began to enhance the function of the facility. These improvements are necessary to expand our research and educational programs and to ensure safety for site users. Below is a list of major accomplishments to date:
The vineyard serves to educate and inform OSU students and the Oregon wine industry through classes, training, and research. Located 30 minutes south of the Corvallis campus, just west of the town of Alpine, Woodhall Vineyard features a southern slope and a relatively warm mesoclimate within the hillside.
The research winery at Oregon State University is a hands-on learning environment, serving to educate and inform OSU students and the Oregon wine industry through classes, training, and research. Students will learn how to prepare grapes for processing and engage in the winemaking process. They will work with a stemmer-crusher, presses, filtration systems, batch centrifuge and bottling system. The winery also serves as a storage facility for research wine.
