    "For the past 3 years we have attended EWE in Lancaster PA. We've experienced the wide and valuable selection of topics as well as the great cross-section of speakers/presenters. We also found value in the spirited question and answer periods and the opportunity to visit with other Eastern U.S. winery owners. The trade shows are well worth the time one can spend there. We plan to attend in Syracuse next March."
