“Investing in Oregon Vineyard Stewards will positively impact the overall health of our wine community today and for the future. This event aims to spread awareness about the work AHIVOY is doing to empower those in the vineyard and to touch on the changing demographic of those who are consuming wine and working in the wine industry,” explains DeAnna Ornelas, AHIVOY President. Co-founder and Vice President, Sofía Torres-McKay, stresses: “When we empower our vineyard stewards through education we will automatically be taking care of our land and our grapes. As a result we will produce higher quality wines and build a better community where everyone wins. Education is key.” Co-founder Miguel Lopez adds “AHIVOY is the evolution of an industry built on the hard work of the vineyard stewards that came before us. They now have a voice lending them the opportunity to grow and evolve through the education we provide them and the steppingstone into a brighter future for them and for us.”
