The Antelope Valley Winegrowers Association founded in 2006, has brought together winegrowers and winemakers to form a collective voice for the promotion and advancement of an ever growing wine industry in the Antelope Valley. Our mission is to preserve and promote wine-growing and wine-making in the Antelope Valley of the California High Desert. The Association works closely with our local cities and counties to facilitate the development of wine related business and tourism in the area. Members regularly participate in the formation of public policy as it relates to agriculture and community development. This is in an effort to preserve our local heritage of grape growing and wine-making that dates back to the 1890's.
