Cord Switzer, CEO of Fredericksburg Winery, who attended the opening of the new facility, said mitigating the effects of Pierce's disease was "vital to the economic security of the industry."
Switzer, who produces about 7,000 cases of wine annually from wine-grapes bought from eight area vineyards, said support for new facility was key to the industry's future. "This really is a multiple-state, multiple-industry issue," Switzer said. "And we need to not only have a facility like this, but we need to get funding in place to address this disease on a national level." Switzer will travel to Washington, D.C. later this month as the Texas wine industry representative on a team discussing funding for Piece's disease with U.S. Department of Agriculture officials and congressional appropriators. "We have state-related legislation in place to address the issue, but now we need national funding for efforts related to Piece's disease," he said. "And this year, for the first time, Texas has a place at the table during those discussions." Switzer said mitigating the disease would also benefit agri-tourism stemming from vineyard and winery tours and help the economy of multiple communities in wine-producing areas of the U.S.

said Cord Switzer, the boisterous owner of Fredericksburg Winery and legislative co-chair for the Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association.
He points to the industry's $1.7 billion economic impact in 2009, a 26 percent increase from two years earlier. Wine and grape producers paid $78.5 million in state and local taxes in '09, up from $39 million in 2005, when the state started providing funding. "We feel we are part of the solution in that we are the small businesses that the governor says are important to Texas," Switzer said.

said Cord Switzer, owner of Fredericksburg Winery, who toured the facility with the congressman."Funding for Pierce's disease research in Texas is very important because it translates into better data that can be used not only here, but also in California and other wine-grape growing states." Conaway and his staff were "extremely involved" in helping establish the Fredericksburg facility and supportive of efforts to find a solution for Pierce's disease, said Switzer. Switzer added that he and other vineyard and commercial winery owners, primarily from California, will go to Washington, D.C., soon to meet with legislators and discuss Pierce's disease research relative to the new Farm Bill. "The specialty crop funding portion of the new Farm Bill is essential to these efforts," he said.
