This morning, the LODI RULES Committee of the Lodi Winegrape Commission hosted their annual LODI RULES Year-End Recap Event. The LODI RULES Community – growers, vintners, supporters, & leaders – gathers annually to discuss the previous certification year and to highlight important opportunities ahead. Attending this annual meeting ensures that you have all of the latest resources to get the most out of your LODI RULES participation, engages you with your LODI RULES community, and informs you of any changes coming ahead.

At this meeting, a new educational video – created in the same style as our Mealybug Biocontrol Video – was premiered. Check it out below and give us a thumbs up on YouTube if you like it!


Coming soon will be a wonderful article on sheep grazing in vineyards by journalist Ted Rieger, full of tips for those growers wishing to try it out.

And in case you want to view the entire LODI RULES Year-End Recap virtual event (1 hour):
