Exploring This Job

Part-time or summer employment at a winery is an excellent method of gaining an insight into the skills and temperament needed for this profession. A high school student also can explore opportunities in the field through discussions with professionals already working as enologists. Because some technical colleges offer evening and online courses in enology, it may be possible for a high school student to audit or take a course for future college credit. If you're age 21 or older, try making your own wine at home.
