What VVA members are saying
Donald – VAHickory Hill Vineyards - Moneta, VA
After attending your pruning webinar, this morning's continued pruning is like walking into a new vineyard. My mistakes of the past decade are glaring and obvious but so are the solutions! Your timely advice was just what this vineyard needed!
Krista – TXHartman Vineyards - Sadler, TX
Participating consistently in the Academy has been one of the most important investments of my time and financial resources for the health and success of my small vineyard. Fritz’s passion for teaching translates what could sound so academic into actionable advice I understand and can execute with confidence.
Amanda – WVWest Whitehill Winery - Moorefield, WV
I've gotten SO MUCH out of my membership with you. It’s so great to have someone to go to for specific questions, as I'm the only grape grower I know. The online resources are super helpful too!
Craig – NCStone Ashe Vineyards - Henderson, NC
The benefits to my crew from the information in just a single pruning webinar more than paid for the cost of my annual membership.
David – TXFredericksburg, TX
I ordered my 2nd block of plants from Inland Desert Nursery and received the $500 discount! Thanks for providing these vendor discounts to your members. It certainly does pay for the membership.
Mark – PAHard Hill Farm & Vineyards - Hamburg, PA
I love the information on your website. Joining Virtual Viticulture Academy is the best investment I’ve made since I’ve started (wish I had found it last year, it probably would have eliminated a ton of costly mistakes).
