You’ll find out what is being applied to vineyards in your area and by whom. 

We will look at data collected by the state pesticide use report and mapped by the state department of public health. The chemicals applied on wine grapes include carcinogens, neurotoxins, bird and bee toxins and developmental and reproductive toxins.
