Calaveras County, CA — The founder of Ironstone Vineyards Gail Kautz has received the Woman of the Year Award from Sen. Charles Poochigian.
Every year for the last 20 years each senator selects a woman in their district who has significantly contributed to her community.
Poochigian represents the 14th senate district, which covers Kautz´ Lodi farm. Kautz and her husband John founded Ironstone Vineyards in 1989.
Kautz was selected for her work in 4H and on many state commissions.
A ceremony was held Monday in Senate chambers. Honorees were given a framed certificate and attended a reception with the Lieutenant Governor and first lady Maria Shriver.
