Fall 2021 National Policy Retreat

November 10, 2021

Virtual Meeting


WineAmerica looks forward to holding its Fall 2021 National Policy Conference on November 10th, 2021. As with so many events during Covid-19, this meeting will be held virtually. We hope that WineAmerica members who are not usually able to join us for this annual event will participate this year.

The meeting will include a welcome address by WineAmerica Chair Janie Heuck and WineAmerica President Jim Trezise. The keynote speaker will be Dave Wulf, Deputy Administrator, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. WineAmerica staff will present a government affairs report along with a projection policy priorities for 2022. 

We encourage all members to participate. There is no charge to attend.
