Please join us for a fun evening at Fresno State, surrounded by our vineyards and winery!

 Friends, family, alumni, and members of the grape and wine industry are invited to be a part of this annual celebration that is held outdoors on the Viticulture and Enology lawn at Fresno State, just one night before the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology's Convocation Ceremony at the Save Mart Center.

 We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our graduates and introducing our graduating class to everyone at this festive occasion.

Once again, we are pleased to announce that the San Joaquin Valley Winemakers Group has chosen to make this dinner event their monthly meeting for May.   As always, we welcome their attendance and support of our program.
