Allied Grape Growers annual meeting in pictures

The 2015 annual meetings of the Allied Grape Growers cooperative held July 7 and 9 in Fresno and Santa Rosa, Calif., respectively, were full of news and forecasts about California's ever changing wine industry - an industry where change seems a daily affair.

Those gathered at the Fresno site received a sobering look at the likelihood that still more vines will need to come out in the southern San Joaquin Valley; given the supply and demand for interior-grown grapes.

In addition, growers heard which varieties were hot and which were on the outs, about the changing demand demographically, and an overall decline in the demand for the bulk of wines out of the region – wines priced at under $10.
