Our latest New Leaders event focused on why the Yakima Valley is the best place to grow grapes (and other agricultural products). Three main factors make our valley a unique and succesful area, especially for wine grapes: water, soil, inclement weather. By relying on ice flow, nutrient rich soil and several seasons, wine growers can grow more varieties of grapes than other regions in the world. Having more variety in the grapes we can grow makes for more complex and more delicious wine.
Thank you to all who attended our last event and a special thanks to our hosts and sponsors Wine Yakima Valley and Yakima Valley Hop Shop. New Leaders wishes all a Happy Holidays!
