Welcome to the Sierra Wine and Grape Growers Association

Next Meeting

SWGGA Meeting January 19, 2017

At this month’s meeting Dave Elliott will give a presentation entitled: “Winter Vineyard Practices”, which is intended to describe “best practices” for vineyard management during the “off season”.  We sill start with post-harvest tasks, (while your attention is normally diverted to fermentation), through pruning, and end with bud-break, the traditional start of the season.

The meeting will be Thursday, January 19th  at Ponderosa Hall, Nevada County Fairgrounds, Gate 2, starting at 7:00 PM. Bring a bottle of your favorite wine to share before the program.

Future meeting topics will include “Can This Wine be Saved?” in February, and Wine and Food Pairings with our new Social Coordinators, the Tonnies’ (to be scheduled), and many more really great programs.  A more complete schedule will be published soon in the Trellis Wire.

The Purpose of Our Organization

Our purpose is to inform and educate our current and future members, neighbors, the media and the general public about grape growing and wine making in a casual and social environment.

Who We Are tells our association’s story: its description and history, the benefits of membership, how the association is managed, the calendar of public meetings and policies of the organization.

The Members Area is for active members, including the calendar of events, monthly Trellis Wire newsletter downloads, slides and documents from recent programs, links to technical sites and downloads, as well as other matters of association business.
