The Napa Valley Grapegrowers will host its 12th annual Napa County Pruning Contest on Feb. 7 from 8<TH>a.m. to noon. The event highlights the art, skill and speed exhibited by those who work in Napa Valley's vineyards. Many vineyards hold competitions within their own companies before sending their top pruners to the county competition.

Growers and vineyard managers are encouraged to attend to cheer on contestants and enjoy lunch provided by Villa Corona.
