|Annual Meeting & Conference|
Dear Virginia Wine Industry,
This year, the Virginia Wineries Association is excited to roll out a fresh, new 2-day conference that allows our Annual Meeting to expand to cover all aspects of our dynamic Virginia wine industry. This new conference format is intended to boost networking, provide additional learning opportunities, and help wineries and vineyards get inspired. You asked and we listened!
MORE Networking! MORE Learning! MORE Inspiration!
DAY 1 includes … Exciting industry updates, Annual membership meeting with lunch, high-energy programming specifically geared towards the business aspects of running a successful winery/vineyard, and then the day culminates with the Corks & Cocktail reception!
DAY 2 includes… Workshops that focus on the technical facets of quality wine production specifically Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc from VA Tech, Brock University, the Wine Research Exchange, area winemakers, and more! This day will also include tastings looking at stylistic and regional differences for Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc and lunch.
During the 2-day VWA conference, November 13-14, 2017, VWA members will be given several chances to network with peers at lunch and at the Cork & Cocktail reception. You will learn about how the Wine Marketing Office is preparing to market Virginia wines in the coming months and about useful regulatory changes that will impact you this year. Through conversations and connections, you will be inspired to think up new and innovative ways to do what you do a little better in the future. This is the largest annual meeting of the people who make Virginia wine great. Bring your entire staff for DAY 1, DAY 2, or BOTH days of this unique conference experience. Register Now!
