Embedded within the Department of Viticulture and Enology at California State University, Fresno, the V.E. Petrucci Library is named for Vincent E. Petrucci, founder of the Viticulture and Enology programs at Fresno State. The Petrucci Library has existed in some form throughout the history of the program, and in 1996, was endowed by the Viticulture and Enology Alumni Association to enable the library to continue to serve students, faculty and staff, and the wine, grape, and raisin industries.
