Winegrapes Included in USDA Coronavirus Food Assistance Program

The USDA announced today that winegrapes will be eligible for the second round of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP2), which is designed to provide direct payments to growers who have suffered financial losses during 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Wine Institute worked closely with CAWG and other grower organizations to advocate for the inclusion of winegrapes in this critical program. More information on the program and how to apply for assistance can be found here:

Annual assessments are past due. If you need the forms, they can be downloaded here: Wineries   Lodgings

This week I will shoot an email to any member that has not yet renewed. Please let me know if you do not plan to renew so I do not continue to reach out.
If you signed up for Wine & Food Affair, please send us your assessment payment by this Friday. We need to make sure wineries have paid if we are featuring them in the event.

Women Winemakers: Personal Odysseys

Spend an evening with Lucia and John Gilbert, professors and lovers of wine, discussing their recently published book and longstanding research project “Women Winemakers: Personal Odysseys.” The Sonoma County winemakers featured in the book, Margaret Davenport, Zelma Long, Shelly Rafanelli, and Carol Shelton will join them and share stories from their professional journeys. “Women Winemakers” captures the passion, courage, and talent of the women who are successfully making their way in what has long been a male-dominated field.
