View February 15 – Join Zoom on Wednesday, February 17 at 6:30 p.m. for a discussion on evaluating vineyards, wines, farms and ranches and market conditions with our special speaker, David Bolster. David brings valuable insights into this topic with his extensive experience, knowledge and lifetime of experience in the agricultural industry combined with nearly 20 years of real estate experience.

Understanding and negotiating the flow of many complex variables is essential to making informed and appropriate decisions about buying, selling or investing in agricultural real estate improvements. These variables include: location, site suitability, regulations and zoning, market and industry trends, market potential and business models.

Discussions focused on current market conditions, value factors (location, structural improvements, vineyard characteristics, net income, grape market), appraisers, recent activity in the wine market, and buyers: lifestyle or commercial. David will also talk about future and new investments in El Dorado and Amador counties.

All winemakers, wineries and interested parties are invited to this Zoom meeting to better understand what this means for winemakers, wineries and the industry as a whole. Participants are encouraged to ask David questions.

IN GOOD HEALTH! The announcement of the launch of the grape sale is on its way!

Are your profile and variety list ready? Grape buyers and growers are already thinking about their plans for 2021. Are you ready? The EDWGGA Board of Directors has decided to start selling our grapes earlier than usual to generate interest and activity in the early stages of grape sales.

The list of EDWGGA 2020 grapes for sale has been completely cleaned up. It’s time to go to your profile and update your history, add photos, elevation, AGM, soil, clones, attributes, prices, grower quotes, etc. We know it’s early, but if possible, include in your profile the estimated capacity of your varieties, growing conditions and any special growing methods that may be of interest. If you do not know the price per ton, please add REQUEST.
