Rick Stark of Sun-Maid Growers of California

The National Grape Research Alliance is a voluntary membership organization–that means we rely on the participation of industry members to strengthen and mobilize our mission. Traditionally, NGRA members have included:

  • wine grape growers and wineries
  • table grape growers
  • juice grape growers and processors
  • raisin growers and processors
  • rootstock growers

Our members–listed below–represent the entire grape and wine industry, coast to coast, as demonstrated by the structure of our Board of Directors.

NGRA welcomes service providers and equipment providers as affiliate members, including:

  • vineyard management consultants
  • equipment manufacturers
  • laboratories
  • chemical providers
  • nurseries

Industry memberships begin at $1,000 and affiliate memberships at $3,000. All memberships are tax-deductible; benefits begin immediately upon receipt of your contribution, including:

  • monthly e-newsletter
  • NGRA baseball cap
  • at least three face-to-face meetings each year in locations around the country
  • board and committee appointments (as seats are available, for industry members)
  • participation in targeted mission-critical conversations with federal research agencies
  • discounts on NGRA events like the NGRA-ARS Sensor Technology Workshop in November 2019 and ASEV-NGRA Precision Viticulture Symposium in June 2021
  • opportunities to serve on research projects as collaborators and/or advisory panelists

The biggest benefit of all? A seat at the table in national-level discussions about the game-changing research that will improve the quality, sustainability and competitiveness of the American grape and wine industry. For more details about what we do and how we work, see the NGRA overview presentation.
