Sharing Your Wine at EWE
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 three EWE events for this:
Welcome Wine Reception, March 22
The reception features wine tasting stations from states and regions throughout the East.
Industry Celebration Dinner, March 23
Wines will be poured at the reception prior to dinner and also elegantly staged on dinner tables for everyone’s enjoyment during the meal.
Blogging Station, March 22-23
Bloggers will be on hand to sample your wine and talk about it in the blogosphere right from the show.
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. If your association is not on the list and you would like to represent your state or region at the event, contact Richard Leahy by March 16 at email@example.com or 434-825-9061. Any volunteers who have not yet registered will be given a free Reception pass.
