A sign welcoming visitors to C.C. Jentsch Cellars, south of Oliver, B.C., announces its membership in the planned Golden Mile Bench DVA.
Penticton, B.C.—British Columbia’s first subappellation is in sight, paving the way for additional proposals for new geographical indications in one of Canada’s primary wine regions.

The three-member board of the B.C. Wine Authority (BCWA) last week asked the province’s agriculture minister to formally approve and establish the Golden Mile Bench Designated Viticultural Area (DVA), the first subappellation within the larger Okanagan Valley DVA.

Napa Valley, Calif.—Though the news got buried when an earthquake struck a few hours later, the seventh annual Napa Valley Grapegrower Harvest Stomp held Aug. 23 raised an unprecedented $870,000 to support its educational programs, promotion and outreach initiatives, the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation and work to preserve agriculture in Napa Valley.

More than $545,000 of the total proceeds will be dedicated to the Farmworker Foundation to support and promote Napa Valley vineyard workers through education and professional development.

Sonya Deluca of the Napa Valley Grapegrowers said that the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation is the only one of its kind in the United States. “What we have established here is truly groundbreaking, and in just four short years, we have raised over $1.2 million to support educational and professional development opportunities, reached over 7,500 vineyard workers and their families, expanded our programming by 80% and provided over 377 hours of education.”
