Legal Overview for Vineyards and Wineries

Location: FFA Enrichment Center, 1055 SW Prairie Trail Parkway, Ankeny, Iowa


Chris Sackett, an attorney at BrownWinick, will present on "Legal Overview for Vineyards and Wineries" on Monday, February 19, 2018, at the Iowa Wine Growers Association's Annual Conference. Chris will give a high level overview of the legal issues most often faced by vineyards and wineries. He will focus primarily on business issues, rather than regulatory or compliance matters, and will provide practical advice on how to avoid problems and stay focused on what matters most - running a profitable business. 

Each year, the Iowa Wine Growers Association hosts an annual conference, bringing together more than 100 winemakers, grape growers and others in the industry from across the Midwest. The conference has a line up of speakers and sessions focused on improving practices and knowledge in enology, viticulture, marketing and business, for an opportunity to learn what's new in the industry and network with colleagues.
