Who We Are

A organization that gives U.S. winegrape growers a voice

Formed in 1978 to represent the national winegrape growing industry, the Winegrape Growers of America (WGA) is based on the power of unity, cooperation and efficiency.

WGA serves as the national lobbying arm of the domestic winegrape industry and provides a forum for communication and exchange of information among member states. Over the years, its officers have come from New York, Texas, California, Ohio, Virginia and Washington.

The organization allows winegrape growers to have a voice regarding policy issues in important areas such as research, environmental concerns, wine taxes, international trade and government regulation. Since its inception, WGA has addressed these important issues and more on behalf of growers.
