About the Board

PD/GWSS Board fact sheet.

The PD/GWSS Board is composed of representatives from the winegrape industry. It provides recommendations to the Secretary on the use of funds collected under the PD/GWSS winegrape assessment. The Board is advised by subcommittees established to focus on specific areas and issues.

In the face of increasing risks of invasive pests and diseases from around the world and nation, California’s winegrape growers today can turn to the innovative grower-government partnership created almost two decades ago to help protect their vineyards. The research, outreach and other activities which the Pierce's Disease and Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter Board funds are all geared toward safeguarding California winegrapes.
