Labor is one of the leading challenges we face in our industry. This session will give growers and vineyard managers insight into the state of the California labor market and how the rest of the state’s challenges are impacting Napa. Joe Garcia will discuss the broader California labor market and how the rest of the state's challenges are impacting Napa. Dr. Giovanni Peri, a leading labor economist, has done extensive research on labor trends in Napa and will provide analysis and trends gathered from our annual Wages and Benefits Survey. He will also address national and Napa-specific labor data, and discuss ideas to mitigate the risk of losing labor to other industries and counties.
