“Whether you grow 10 vines or 10,000, there is something for you at Vit Fair,” noted Garrett Buckland, Chair of the Viticulture Fair. “It’s a great time to look at products and make purchase decisions for the upcoming year, network with people from all parts of the industry, and celebrate the end of harvest.”
New this year is an entire day dedicated to education and training in Spanish, which will take place at the Fairgrounds the day before the tradeshow: November 6. Jess Gomez will lead a 3 hour intensive workshop entitled, How You Can Lead, Coach, and Motivate a Vineyard Crew to Excellence.
