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 10
The reception features wine tasting stations from states and regions throughout the East.
9th Annual EWE Industry Celebration Dinner, March 11
Wines will be poured at the reception prior to dinner and also staged on dinner tables for everyone’s enjoyment during the meal.
Would You Like 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 complimentary Reception pass.
BEFORE EWE: Email us at email@example.com by February 28 with your name, company name, state, the number of bottles of red and of white, or other, that you are bringing to the Welcome Reception or Celebration Dinner so that we may track inventory (see sample below.)
