Welcome to the Sierra Wine and Grape Growers Association

Next Event:

General Meeting, Thursday February 21, 7 pm

Can This Wine Be Saved?

This event has become an annual winner! For our next meeting we will have the pleasure of greeting Mark Foster, winemaker at Nevada City Winery and Jack Starr, winemaker at Sierra Starr Winery. These two pros will evaluate our new, or questionable, wines as we taste along with them.

If you have wines that you’d like critiqued, bring two 750 ml bottle of each wine. Because of popularity of this event, only two wines can be submitted for each home winery. Also, please bring at least two glasses for the tastings.

The meeting will start at 7:00 PM on Thursday February 21st at Ponderosa Hall on the Nevada County Fairgrounds (Gate 2). For our social session prior to the meeting, bring a bottle of your favorite to share, and bring a friend.

You are also more than welcome to bring an appetizer to share.

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

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