Join the celebration of grape growers and grape growing in British Columbia! The BC Grapegrowers’ Association invites all industry members (growers, wine makers, suppliers, writers) to its second annual Celebration of Harvest on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at Thee Vineglass Vineyard in Cawston, BC.
It’s a time to honour grape growers and their successes and recognize their importance in our industry -- plus have a great evening in the process. We’re planning all sorts of fun for the evening – dinner, live music, dancing, fabulous door prizes, stories, wine, and much more!
The BC Grapegrowers’ Association was officially registered as a non-profit society back in 1961 by a group of growers who had a vision for our industry and saw a need for a grassroots organisation to represent grape producers in British Columbia on agricultural issues and concerns. With a current membership of over 240 growers, we work with other industry organizations, with provincial and federal agricultural organizations and all levels of government to represent, promote and advance the interests of grape growers in British Columbia. Some highlights of activities today include the management of the Okanagan Similkameen Starling Control Program, workshops and our annual grower day, regular newsletters and updates to our members, an active fresh market grapes committee that oversees the table grape production, and a multitude of other activities.
If you’re in the grape industry in any way, you’re not only invited to the Celebration of Harvest in September, but also to become a member or associate member of the BCGA.
