The most important service to the WAWGG membership is the need for continuing education for a growing industry focused on premium quality.
To fulfill this need, each year WAWGG produces the annual meeting, grower seminars and classes and provides continuing education to growers at all levels – industry newcomers and established veterans.
The WAWGG web site is just one way that wine grape growers can ensure that they know the latest information about important viticulture topics and the latest technology.
