Attendees at the Napa Valley Grapegrowers’ annual Harvest STOMP demonstrated their strong commitment to farmworker education by raising $40,000 to provide ongoing education programs to all vineyard workers in the Napa Valley.

Each spring, the Napa Valley Grapegrowers produces the only comprehensive education and resources program for farmworkers in the Napa Valley. These funds will go directly towards supporting this 2-day program, which covers issues critical for employment development, health and well-being, and the quality of winegrape production.
