Sharing Your Wine
As a way of facilitating education and networking, we encourage everyone in the EWE community to share their knowledge and continue to learn about what others in the East are doing. What better way to do this than sharing and tasting each other’s wines? There are two EWE events for this:
Welcome Wine Reception, March 19
The reception features wine tasting stations from states and regions throughout the East.
8th Annual EWE Industry Celebration Dinner, March 20
Wines will be poured at the reception prior to dinner and also staged on dinner tables for everyone’s enjoyment during the meal.
Want to Pour Wine at the Welcome Wine Reception?
You can take your participation one step further by pouring the wine from your region and sharing your knowledge about it. Contact your association or AVA directly to participate. Click here to view a list of participating associations. Any volunteers who have not yet registered will be given a free Reception pass.
