Accessibility Statement

As outlined below, the commission is making every effort to ensure that the pages on this website are accessible to individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act as amended.

The commission’s commitment takes several concrete forms:

  • Provide text equivalents for every non-text element including image maps, GIFs, JPEGs and other format images.
  • Use client-side image maps rather than server-side image maps.
  • Ensure that information conveyed with color is also available without color.
  • Accompany images on the website with alternative text describing graphics if your browser supports the alt-text function.
  • Organize documents to ensure they may be read without the use of a style sheet.
  • Provide column and row headers for tables.
  • Provide links to specialized software needed to view certain information on the site (e.g. Adobe PDF reader).
  • Offer a point of contact for help, if needed, to access website information.
  • Employ graphics minimally and those graphics that are present are labeled to ensure readability.
  • Use software that identifies and corrects accessibility problems when preparing new content for the site, or updating extant content.

The commission site contains information including complex tables. We are working hard to ensure that the web site is completely accessible but recognize that there may be remaining issues. If you use special adaptive equipment to access the web and encounter problems when using the commission site, please let us know. Write to us at info@grapesfromcalifornia.com and we will provide the information to you in an alternate format. Please be as specific as possible when describing the information you need and the problems that you encountered. General questions and comments about our accessibility efforts are also welcomed.

With more than 90 grape varieties grown, California grapes come in three colors—green, red and black—and are in season from May through January.
