This just in from TWGGA Executive Director Debbie Reynolds about the Texas Wine and Grape Growers Conference:
The 37th Annual TWGGA Conference and Trade Show ended on Saturday, February 16 with TWGGA members and friends raising money for the TWGGA Foundation and dancing the night away to the sounds from Exit 277 Band. The three-day conference enjoyed record attendance, the largest Exhibit Hall, and the top speakers from all over the world.
