David Pittard, co-owner of Buttonwood Grove Winery, met with Cayuga business students on October 19, 2018, to share the journey of purchasing the winery with his wife in 2014 and the ongoing operations of running a winery. He explained the history of the winery, the agricultural and production side of the business, in addition to marketing, distribution, and sales. The students were given a tour of the entire facility including an up-close look at the grape vines. It was a great experience for our students to see a successful locally owned winery first hand.
