California Wine Grapes from San Luis Obispo County, USA
The Independent Grape Growers of the Paso Robles Area (IGGPRA) is dedicated to the advancement of superior wine grape growing in the Paso Robles American Viticultural Area, the largest and fastest-growing wine appellation in California and the home to a distinct variety of soils, micro-climates, and grape varietals.
Through our online marketplace listing service, ongoing seminars, and other critical services, IGGPRA provides a networking forum to promote cooperation and collaboration between the over 300 IGGPRA Member Grape Growers in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo County (representing 27,000 fruit-producing acres and 40 grape varietals), and interested international grape growers, grape buyers, vintners, and vineyard suppliers.
IGGPRA’s 2014 Member Directory
Our new 2014 membership will be available shortly. In fact, members will receive a copy in the mail in early July. The Board is especially proud of this latest effort that, we believe, will improve the visibility and recognition of the Association. If not, you know how to reach us and we will seriously consider your input in future efforts. In the meantime, the Board encourages you to frequent member Associate Businesses, many of which contributed through advertising to the Directory project.

IGGPRA Membership Signs – NEW DESIGN!
After a great deal of thought and recognition that brand registration is a function of repeated exposure to a single, simple visual or copy message, the IGGPRA Board has decided to create a new sign that is more impactful, registers the IGGPRA name instantly and carries the logo that appears on our Website, newsletter and various mailings. The new sign is the essence of impactful simplicity. For those of you who are married to the old design please consider that “pretty” doesn’t necessarily equate to successful communication and at normal highway speeds it is difficult to determine just what the sign represents. As an aside, if you still love the old sign, Joe Irick still has a few in stock. While we are looking at material options, the new sign will be double sided, have UV laminated graphics in a vertical format and should be available by August 1.
