The Survey NVG conducts the Napa Valley Wages & Benefits survey annually in January. The goal of the survey is to gather information on vineyard labor practices and compensation, analyze the data, and re-distribute it to all participating grower and vineyard management company members to be used as a tool to effectively compensate their vineyard workers.
The Results NVG engages a third party to conduct the survey, which results in an independent and objective product. Giovanni Peri, Professor of Economics and Director, Temporary Migration Cluster, UC Davis, compiles the information and provides participants with a thorough analysis of the data. Information obtained from the survey is kept strictly confidential and presented only in aggregate form with no single entity mentioned. The detailed aggregate results of the analysis are distributed only to NVG member survey participants.
