WineAmerica returns to Washington DC for our annual National Wine Policy Conference this May 7-8th. The conference combines learning, advocacy, and networking. Taking place at WineAmerica’s office, minutes away from Capitol Hill, this meeting is the industry’s major opportunity to make its voice heard.

The two-day agenda will feature speakers and presentations on the politics and policies affecting our industry.
