COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A University of Missouri research center that studies grape growth is creating an experimental winery.
The school's Institute for Continental Climate Viticulture and Enology (ee-NAHL'-uh-jee) provides research support to the state's 92 commercial wineries.
By setting up a winery, the institute can apply those experiments to the entire winemaking process.
The wine will be commercially available with a label that reflects its university affiliation.
Viticulture is the science of growing grapes. Enology is the science and study of wines and winemaking.
