COLUMBIA — 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 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.
