(NEW) Bridging the Generation Gap: shared perspectives in a family winery - November 4, 2014

After working with each generation in a separate class, we thought it would be smart to bring everyone together in a collaborative workshop to talk about what they've learned, work through a case study, and get down to the nitty gritty. This session is open to prior Next Gen class attendees as well as others who want to get right to the heart of the matter in their family winery.

Are you looking to expand your volume or product offerings? In this class, designed for winery owners, we’ll help you understand the cost of incremental SKUs and additional case production so you can create the right pricing structure to ensure your business operates in the black.
