Welcome to the Sierra Wine and Grape Growers Association




The Wonderful May Meeting

The May Members Only meeting took place on Sunday, May 20th at the home of members Blair and Randy Newsome, who were profiled in the April Trellis Wire. It featured  a comparative tasting of 2009 Bordeaux wines from their wine cellar.

Members provided wines for sharing during the social hour, and there were plenty of wonderful appetizers. It was a memorable meeting, and we thank Randy and Blair for opening their beautiful house to us.
