California has always dominated the wine industry in the U.S., yet only a few other states can also boast of their production. Ohio is one of them.
Christy Eckstein, executive director, Ohio Grape Industries Committee (OGIC), will talk about Ohio’s position in the top 10 U.S. wine producers.
An increase in grape production, licensed wineries, job creation, and winery visitors have all contributed to a 34 percent increase since 2008.
The OGIC is a quasi-state agency created in 1981 to create viable, income-producing grape enterprises in the state of Ohio by providing marketing and promotion efforts to generate and expand new markets for grapes and grape products and research to improve the quality of grapes and profitability of grape growing as an agri-business.
Arrive early, as breakfast and informal networking will start at 8 a.m., with the program to follow.
The cost is just $10 per person (cash or check at the door) which includes breakfast and networking opportunities.
The Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum is an educational networking opportunity to provide information on current issues, trends and programs available to the agricultural community and those who support its advancement.
Walk-ins are welcome, but guests are encouraged to reserve a seat in advance by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
