Learn About Growing Grapes and Jobs at 21 Brix
Chamber members can get a close-up look at one of Chautauqua County's newest wineries this week, during a Chamber Networking Mixer at 21 Brix Winery in Portland. Very recently, 21 Brix was awarded a Value Added Grant from USDA to help bolster its wine-making and distribution avenues and to create jobs.
Chamber members are invited to learn more about the winery and how the grant funding will be used during this event, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 17.
The Mixer is sponsored by Casella Waste Service, Jamestown Jammers, Jamestown Savings Bank Arena, the OBSERVER, The Post-Journal, and WDOE/96KIX.
To register, call the Chamber at 366-6200 or 484-1101, or visit our web site at www.chautauqu-achamber.org.
