SWGGA Meeting

SWGGA Meeting

Just a reminder that we will be having a SWGGA General Meeting by Zoom this evening at 7:00 PM. The invitation is below.

Program: John Gilman, Proprietor of New West Wine Co, will talk about his wines, his approach to wine selection, and how he got “into” wine in the first place. This will be a gentle interview by myself, taking place in John’s shop, with the usual Q&A afterwards. The wine shop is located in the Holbrooke Hotel, but access is from Main Street in Grass Valley.
We hope to see you then.

Vineyard Available

I own a 1/3-acre vineyard (200 vines with NID water), just south of Grass Valley proper, off McCourtney in Mustang Valley. There are three varieties of red grapes for wine making: Zinfandel, Barbera and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines are going into their 8th year and are good producers. I don’t have the time to invest in becoming a decent wine maker but it would be great if someone that is such an expert took advantage of the grapes.


Our programs are devoted to both winemaking and vineyard development and management, as well as tastings and other social events.
