From identifying challenges in the vineyard to improving winemaking and marketing efforts, the sixth annual conference for the Montana Grape and Winery Association offers something new for everyone this year.
The group will meet at the Bitterroot River Inn in Hamilton for a three-day session, March 5 to 6, and will begin Thursday evening with a tasting event where participants will be able to sample and classify Montana wines produced by members. The prizes will be delivered for the best entries in a banquet on Friday evening.
The main sessions of the gathering begin Friday morning with five presentations ranging from grape troubleshooting to an update by the Montana State University of Corvallis Western Agricultural Research Center on the health and vitality of Montana vineyards.
