Yesterday we spent time with the ever-enthusiastic and inspiring members of the Arkansas Association of Grape Growers at the annual conference hosted by VESTA and Arkansas Tech University, Ozark Campus. The panel of speakers covered an array of topics benefiting the muscadine and grape farmers. As always, the best part is enjoying the mix of people, from students in the VESTA program to the researchers and the icons of the industry. What inspiration to go back to the vineyard! Still, maybe we will take a breather and enjoy reflecting on the year.
