Welcome to the Sierra Wine and Grape Growers Association

Next Meeting

Visit to the Lucero Vineyard and Winery

Thursday July 19, 7 pm

This month’s Regular Meeting will be held at Lucero Vineyard and Winery in Dobbins at 7PM on Thursday July 19.  The program will include a tour of the vineyard and winery, with hosts Mariam and Dan discussing their process of entering the vineyard business as well as their foray into winemaking.

They will have wines to taste and purchase, and Mariam will be serving a pasta salad.

Attendees may bring home made wines, but we ask that you do not bring outside commercial wines.

This will be a great opportunity to visit a successful vineyard turned winery in our area!

Annual Picnic Was a Roaring Success!

Sixty members gathered for an afternoon of fun, food, wine and music at the home of SWGGA members Gary Glaze and Teri Dougherty.

We returned to the barbecue and potluck format for this event, and we had musical entertainment, as well as the wine raffle for the Scholarship Fund.

Many members brought wine to share and bottles for the raffle. We had over 40 bottles.

Guests had a choice of Hamburger, Sausage or Chicken, all cooked by Jim Garrett, Bernie Zimmerman and Hosea Bostic.

Thank you, everyone, as special thanks to our wonderful hosts, Gary and Teri, and to the indefatigable Jim Garrett.

Here are some photos.
