The final CDFA Grape Crush Report was released on March 9th and this year’s report shines a positive light on the Lake County wine industry. Clay Popko, Vice President of the Vineyard & Winery Group at American AgCredit, will take a deep look and review this key report to help you better understand the market and anticipate future trends that will affect the Lake County wine industry.

This seminar will provide attendees with insight to wine industry trends and knowledge that will help vineyard and winery owners to make better-educated decisions on what varietals plant, who to sell grapes to, and what the future might hold in this highly competitive North Coast wine industry.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP by April 20th.
