Description: Lodi Grape Day is FREE to attend and open to everyone thanks to the support of fantastic sponsors. Grape Day originated in 1952 and was created by a Lodi Chamber of Commerce Agribusiness Chairman, Calvin Mettler, and UC Davis Extension agent Gordon F. Mitchell to provide the latest information and thinking around grape culture to harvest. For this year’s virtual event and in the absence of a Lodi Viticulture Farm Advisor, Kari Arnold, PhD (UCCE Stanislaus County) and Kamyar Aram, PhD (UCCE Alameda and Contra Costa Counties) will moderate the sessions, which include time for Q&A. Come with your questions! Lodi Grape Day will be recorded and available online afterward at lodichamber.com and lodigrowers.com with closed captioning, thanks to UC-ANR Program Support and sponsorships.
