Day in the Capitol
Location: The Sutter Club, Sacramento Room
Numbers matter and we need you to turnout with your fellow growers and industry peers for a day of grassroots lobbying in Sacramento on Wednesday, April 4. Our lobbying team headed by Michael Miiller, CAWG Director of Government Relations, and Jack Gualco, The Gualco Group, have planned an exciting and informative day for you with key legislators and top regulatory officials. The Day in the Capitol is your opportunity to talk with and educate key policy makers about important issues affecting your business.
The Day in the Capitol will begin with registration at 8:30 AM, followed by a speaker program and legislative briefing by a member of the State Legislature that will cover a variety of issues that are important to the business, agriculture and the winegrape growing communities at 9:00 AM. The day will continue with a luncheon featuring speakers that include top ranking administrative and legislative leaders focusing on important industry topics, at 12:00 PM. The group will then head to the State Capitol to meet with state Assemblymembers and Senators to lobby for and against specific bills moving through the legislative process, at 2:00 PM.

CAWG Foundation Reception
Location: The Sutter Club, 1220 9th St
The California Association of Wine Grapegrowers Foundation (CAWG Foundation) was created to honor the hard work of the men and women who help produce the highest quality winegrapes. As a non-profit public benefit corporation, the foundation was established to conduct education programs, fund scholarships and support research related to the California wine and winegrape industry. The CAWG Foundation is continuing the tradition of supporting the scholarship program with this exciting reception event. The reception will take place at the Sutter Club on Wednesday, April 4th, and begin at 5:30 PM, with the judging taking place at 6:30 PM.
The event will be paired with CAWG’s Day in the Capitol, with the goal to bring together legislators, other political officials and CAWG members to promote the accomplishments of the foundation and to raise money for the scholarship fund. This year’s event format will once again feature a VIP wine tasting competition where various political leaders will put their decision making to the test by judging a host of wines from across the state. The winning wines will be presented with an award and granted the honor of being considered the best wine as decided by California’s political elite. The reception will also include a silent auction and raffle, with outstanding food, great wine and excellent company, all to support a fantastic cause.
