BC Wine & Grape Industry stakeholders invited to town halls

In the weeks ahead the British Columbia Wine Authority (BCWA) will be conducting an industry plebiscite to allow licensed wine producers (both members and non-members of the BCWA) to vote on the Appellation Task Group recommendations.

In advance of the vote, the Task Group is organizing a series of industry stakeholder town halls. They are located conveniently in order to allow wine producers and grape growers to receive additional information and provide feedback on the proposals.

The dates and venues for these meetings are listed below (note, some times are still to be confirmed). We request that you RSVP in advance for us to be able to confirm seating – email info@bcwinetaskgroup.ca and indicate which meeting you plan to attend. Space is limited.
