 New to Our Group?

Our W&V Roundtable is a special group filled with talent and invaluable camaraderie. Topics focus on advanced career skills you need but aren't always easy to get in the daily winemaking or viticulture environment. Plus, a great annual party to celebrate our ever-growing fellowship.

We meet 6 times a year, taking a harvest break.

We're updating our list. Please share this with fellow owners / GMs, winemakers and viticultural pros that might want to know.  It's a great opportunity to bring guests (they can attend one RT free prior to deciding to join).

Please let us know if you want off list (

We are all here to help with info and questions. Cheers!
