WineAmerica and Winegrape Growers of America are reuniting to produce the 2015 Wine and Grape Policy Conference, April 12-14, 2015. The conference features a revised format to maximize learning, advocacy and networking in a setting only minutes away from Capitol Hill and our nation’s key regulatory agencies.  Winegrowing from grape to glass is heavily regulated. This meeting is the industries opportunity to make its voice heard.

This two-and-half day conference will feature speakers, presentations and insights on the politics and policies affecting our industry. A meeting of the WineAmerica Board of Directors and the State and Regional Association Advisory Council will be included in the agenda. The conference will culminate with the annual “Wines of America” reception. Held in the House of Representatives Office Building, in concert with the Wine Caucus, this tasting demonstrates the importance of the American wine industry by featuring wine from over twenty states. This reception is your opportunity to introduce your wine to your member of Congress.

The 2015 Wine and Grape Policy Conference is your opportunities to make a difference about the laws that affect you.
