2023 Annual Wine and Grape Industry Forum

This year you will receive the most up-to-date information on the wine industry, but we are also adding grower education to the program!

We have decided to make this year’s program even better than before. Not only will there be the most up-to-date information on the state of the industry, but we are also adding some sessions that will give you education credits. The morning program will focus on grower education and Dep. of Pesticide Regulation credits. Then after lunch we will dive into the state of the industry.

This year’s program includes:
