The growing season is behind us, which is always welcome after an extremely busy 5 to 6 weeks… still lots going on in the winery, though.

A post-growing season growers roundtable meeting will be held at Big Door Vineyards in White, GA on October 31. Big Door Vineyards is located at 125 Clearwater Trail, White, GA 30184.

The meeting will take place from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM (sharp – some have kids who want to go out to get candy).

Phil Brannen, Brett Blaauw, UGA Viticulture Team Extension Agents, and myself will be in attendance to guide the roundtable and share observations. Come out to share your victories and defeats from the 2018 growing season. Come to learn from and ask questions of your fellow industry members and UGA Extension personnel.

A box lunch will be available for purchase for $10 per person. You are also welcome to bring your own lunch if you do not wish to purchase a box lunch.

You must pre-register for this meeting. Please pre-register with Cherokee County ANR Agent, Josh Fuder, at Upon registering, please tell Josh if / how many box lunches you wish to purchase.
