Welcome to the Sierra Wine and Grape Growers Association




Next Meeting


Date: Thursday March 15, 7 pm

Location: Ponderosa Hall, Fairgrounds

Topic: Double Oak Vineyards and Winery Presentation

The March SWGGA Meeting will feature longtime commercial members Bob and Ginny Hilsman from Double Oak Vineyard and Winery presenting updates on their winery, as well as providing the membership with an opportunity to taste their wines. Additionally, Bob will bring wines for purchase.

Since this is a Commercial Winery, we ask that members refrain from bringing home wines prior to the meeting. 

Do bring your glasses though!

Last Meeting

The February SWGGA Meeting featured a discussion led by Dave Elliott on “Winter Vineyard Management Practices for the Sierra Foothills.” Dave presented a calendar review on generic practices, and then led a discussion on how these theories are best applied to our Sierra Foothills.

It was a highly informative and well attended meeting (even though it was chilly and dark). Thank you to the members!

Guy Lauterbach of Gray Pine Winery made a contribution to our Scholarship Fund. Guy is a member and sets aside a portion of every sale made to a SWGGA member. Thank you, Guy! You are a true friend.
