WineAmerica and Winegrape Growers of America will reunite in Washington, DC, in April for the 2017 National Grape & Wine Policy Conference.
The April 25–27 industry event will mark the first major event for WineAmerica under new president Jim Trezise who is in the process of transitioning from his role as founding president of the New York Wine & Grape Foundation.
The theme of the conference will be "Raising Awareness of America’s Wine Industry in a New Administration." It will feature speakers and presentations on the politics and policies affecting the industry. It also will include meetings of the WineAmerica Board of Directors and the State and Regional Association Advisory Council, and a “Wines of America” reception on Capitol Hill for members of Congress and their staffs. The tasting will feature wines from more than 20 states.
Registration for the conference is open now, with the schedule and reservation information available online.
