AHIVOY proveé educación y desarrollo profesional, creando el camino para nuestros guardianes de las viñas, los cuales desempeñan un trabajo muy duro como miembros de nuestra comunidad  y de esta manera apoyar a sus familias y establecer una carrera profesional en la industria del vino.


“Thanks to AHIVOY, I realized there’s a lot more out there… more opportunities, more growth,”

-Alejandro A., Class 2020

“Overall I really like what Ryan was teaching, the academic setting, just diving deeper into what we are doing out in the vineyard, that was probably my favorite part of the program.”

-Ivan J., Class 2021

“My future plan right now is to become a vineyard manager, that is what we are working for and learning and this class is helping me a lot because we are learning about management, the soil, and self-development. I invite you to come learn, you will truly learn a lot about the vineyard, the soil, the wine trade, and other areas.”

-Alex C., Class 2023

 

“I don’t think there are many places in the world that are putting this much care and attention into the education and development of the people working hard in the vineyards every day, I am grateful that it exists and we get to participate in it.”

– Leigh B., Results Partners,2023
