An Opportunity to Share 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? Opportunities to pour your own wine at the Welcome Wine Reception are also available. Details and the how-to’s are available on the EWE Sharing Your Wine page.

Blogging Station

The EWE Blogging Station is the place to go to spread the word about your wine. Bloggers will be standing by to sample your wine and blog about it in the blogosphere right from the show.
