“It is essential for us to get out of the cellar from time to time and expand our horizons. EWE is the best and most efficient opportunity I have found to see advances in tools and technology, hear from industry experts on new tips and tricks, taste different wines, network and socialize, all in one place.”  
– Tim Benedict, Winemaker, NY
