Congratulations to our top four winners from left to right: Juan Carlos Alvarenga (4th place), Juan Antonio Lopez (3rd place), Luis Ortiz (2nd place), and Rosalio Saucedo Solorio (1s Place).

On March 7, The Sonoma County winegrowing community gathered to celebrate our vineyard workers for everything they do to keep our vines healthy at our annual Sonoma County Pruning Championship. View the Pruning Championship Photo Album.

Nothing is more significant than the craft of vine pruning that sets the stage for quality wine grapes every vintage. The Pruning Championship winners’ impressive display of speed, precision and accuracy is a perfect example of our talented workforce—the backbone of Sonoma County’s wine industry.
