By Paso Robles Wine Grape Growers, For Paso Robles Wine Grape Growers
The founding goal of IGGPRA is "growers helping growers." While each member has his or her individual philosophies and methods for wine grape growing, all benefit from the open exchange of ideas and industry information which affects every Paso Robles wine grape grower, such as state and federal government issues, vineyard technology improvements, techniques for planting, growing and harvesting, labor issues and industry trends.
Information is provided for members each month through social events, seminars, workshops and newsletters. The IGGPRA website serves as a repository for this timely and significant information.
Please contact any one of our board members if you have something you would like to share with our members, or if you would like to become a member.
