About the MTGWA

About the Montana Grape and Wine Association

The Montana Grape and Wine Association (MTGWA) was incorporated in 2014 to promote viticulture (grape growing) and enology (wine making) in the state. The MTGWA serves commercial and amateur fruit and grape growers and winemakers across Montana. An annual conference is held in early spring each year to bring in speakers from across the country to help grape growers and winemakers improve their knowledge and develop a sustainable wine industry in Montana. The annual conference also brings together people to taste, evaluate and improve Montana wines, ciders and meads.
