Lodi Grape Day has full list of winegrape topics

The Lodi (California) Winegrape Commission will hold its 67th annual Lodi Grape Day in conjunction with University of California Extension and the Lodi Chamber of  Commerce’s Agribusiness Committee.

For over 65 years, the Agribusiness Committee of the Lodi District Chamber of Commerce, along with University of California Cooperative Extension, has brought information about improving yields, fighting diseases, market trends, and mechanization technologies to the hundreds of growers who attend Lodi Grape Day.

After learning about relevant viticulture topics in the morning, growers, pest control advisors, winery personnel, bankers, and business leaders gather together for a special luncheon featuring a keynote speaker.  This year’s keynote speaker is Damien Wilson from Sonoma State University.  Attendance during the morning presentations and wine tasting is free and open to everyone (no tickets or RSVP required). Ticket required for luncheon and keynote speaker presentation.
