Students Visit Brotherhood Winery to Learn About Wine-Making Business

students

NYIT hospitality majors visited America's oldest winery on Oct. 5. The educational trip brought 50 students to Brotherhood Winery in the picturesque village of Washingtonville, N.Y., where they toured the site and learned about the wine-making process. This event was coordinated by Robert Koenig, Stephanie Langdon, and the Society of Hosteurs.

The Brotherhood Winery's rich history dates back to the production of its first commercial vintage in 1839. Nearly a century later, it survived the Prohibition Era of the 1920s and 30s by the sale of sacramental wine to places of worship, and has thrived ever since. 

Each year, students in the Society of Hosteurs visit wineries in the four main wine-making regions of New York state to enhance their studies in beverage management and complement the wine courses they take towards their degree in hospitality management. These visits involve meeting wine producers, touring wine cellars, and learning all elements of wine production, including how to harvest grapes, fermentation techniques, wine storage and maturing methods, and bottling and distribution. Students also learn firsthand all the factors influencing vinification, the conversion of grapes to wine, including viticultural techniques, how geographic locations favor grape varietals, soil types and weather conditions, and pruning methods used to enhance the grapes' quality.
