Where Wineries and Growers Came Together

Thank you to Syracuse and to the 1400+ who came to the 2015 Eastern Winery Exposition! It was another highly successful event loaded with learning, wine tasting, networking, equipment testing, informing, idea sharing, deal making, St. Paddy’s Day toasting, connecting, and socializing. Please be sure to let us know what you thought about the 2015 event. We’re all ears!

Mark your calendar now for March 8-10, 2016 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Click around the site for more information about the 2015 EWE. We’ll leave the information in place as a reference through the summer and will begin posting 2016 information as our planning continues through the early Fall.

2015 Highlights included:

200+ Exhibiting Companies :: Show floor specials, equipment to test, and knowledgeable people to answer your questions.

Two Full Day Workshops :: 17 industry experts shared their experience on how to launch or grow a vineyard or winery.

20 Conference Sessions :: 100% wine & grape-focused with topics ranging from Cold-hardy Grapes to Tasting Room Events to Reserve Reislings to Organic Viticulture.

Ask the Marketing Pros :: Our marketing experts Kris Chislett, Patty Held and E Slater held desk hours and provided free advice to  attendees with marketing questions and challenges.

Blogging Station :: Bloggers were on hand to sample wine and blog about it in the blogosphere right from the show.

Silent & Live Auctions :: Putting the fun in FUNdraising, these two events offered opportunities not just for friendly competition and possible bargains, but also to raise money for the industry’s next generation of Enology and Viticulture professionals.

Networking & Social Opportunities :: Sometimes it’s in those unstructured moments when the learning really happens. We provided plenty of opportunities with the Welcome Wine Reception, Empire Brewery post-reception networking, Buffet Lunch Social, Industry Celebration Dinner, Auctions, and Grazing Lunch in the Exhibit Hall.

VESTA Wine Sensory Analysis Workshop :: The Viticulture Enology Science and Technology Alliance held a separate workshop as a lead-in to the EWE events; geared towards winemakers, cellar workers, winery staff, and wine enthusiasts.


What is EWE? :: The Eastern Winery Exposition is an Eastern-focused wine industry trade show and conference designed to provide the Eastern U.S. and Canadian wineries and vineyards with an easily accessible, affordable, professional event held in a first class venue at the right time of year. A well-rounded conference program, exhibit hall featuring suppliers relevant to our region’s business of wine making, networking events, and state association participation are all integral components of EWE.


We look forward to seeing you in 2016 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania!

    "The exposition floor has a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere equipped with state of the art winery equipment complete with helpful vendors AND discounts and show pricing. We bought a vineyard sprayer and fencing at a show price which would have not been affordable otherwise. I am looking forward to the 2016 EWE! "
