OKLAHOMA GRAPE & WINE INDUSTRY NEWS
Jan 14, 2020
Happy New Year! Hope everyone hasn't grown sick of the 2020 references already...If not please plan to attend the 2020 Grape and Wine Reception & Conference in February. We've put together a group of speakers that will answer health, tax and alcohol questions and others will educate us on soil, grape research and a few other things too! And don't forget to join us at the Sunday evening social to hear Classical Guitarist Edgar Cruz, while you enjoy a little Oklahoma wine, catch up with industry members and visit with the returning state legislators!

We have several new OGIC members to welcome this month too! Mark White of Spectrum Vines & Wines in Norman and Lori Annuschat, USDA Rick Management. See you at the Conference! Cheers!

$2,336 Raised for OGIC! We've had so much going on that I haven't reported on the success of the Hennessey Festival last September. OGIC helped promote the festival again last year. Hennessey did a great job organizing the event, We had great winery participation but the weather wasn't perfect so attendance was lower than previous years! Thank you, Hennessey United for letting us participate in the Festival!

$XXXX Raised for OGIC! The Girls Gone Wine team stepped up 2018 and dedicated a portion of funds raised from sales of a wine they called Uncorked! $3.00 from each bottle sold goes to OGIC to continue the work of modernizing our alcohol laws! We'll reveal the amount at the conference!

Let me know if you have any fundraising ideas that could help us meet our goals!
