Central Coast Wine Growers’ Association appoints two new board members

The Central Coast Wine Growers’ Association (CCWGA) appointed two new board members.

The Central Coast Wine Growers’ Association (CCWGA) appointed two new board members.

Kendall Jackson Vineyard Manager Bart Haycraft of Nipomo was elected to fill a position from the southern area of the association boundaries.  Bart has been with Kendall Jackson about 10 years and graduated from Fresno State.  Prior to moving to the Central Coast he worked in Napa and Lodi with a consulting firm.  Bart is married and has two children and enjoys backyard barbecues and good wine.

Michael Larner of Larner Vineyard was also appointed to the CCWGA board of directors.  He is a winemaker and general manager of the family run boutique Larner Vineyard. Larner received his master’s degree from the Department of Viticulture & Enology at UC Davis in 2005 and earned a degree in geology at the University of Colorado.  Michael has traveled extensively in Europe, gaining experience and is often asked to judge at trade fairs and wine competitions.  He is an active board member of the Santa Barbara Vintners’ Association and founding architect of the newly proposed Ballard AVA (American Viticulture Area).

CCWGA is a non-profit association representing vineyards and wineries in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties.  Formed in 1974; our primary purpose is to advance the wine grape growing industry of these counties through advocacy and education.

The Central Coast Wine Growers’ Association encourages an open dialogue between the wine grape community, local government, special interest groups and the general public to promote a positive and accurate understanding of our industry issues.
