Officially the lab is called The Teaching and Research Winery and the August A. Busch III Brewing and Food Science Laboratory, or WBF for short and is part of the the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science (RMI). The 34,000-sq ft eco lab hosts advanced research and teaching programs and supports outreach into the wine industry. Students and researchers make, research and test wine inside the suburban facility and have a chance to directly test theories and validate new processes for cultivation and production in industrial conditions.
