The US Department of Agriculture has announced that Vizcarra Vineyards has received a $250,000 grant from the USDA's Value-added Producer Grant program.

The VAPG program helps agricultural producers enter into value-added activities related to the processing and/or marketing of bio-based, value-added products. Generating new products, creating and expanding marketing opportunities, and increasing producer income are the goals of this program.

Vizcarra's grant is earmarked for sales and promotion of their Cold Hardy Wine products.
