WineAmerica returns to to Washington DC for our annual National Wine Policy Conference this May 9-10th. 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. It includes business meetings of the WineAmerica Board of Directors and the State and Regional Association Advisory Council (SRAAC), and a wine reception for all attendees. The policy-focused conference is your opportunity to make a difference regarding the laws that affect you.

All WineAmerica members are encouraged to attend. Members of the Wine Growers of America are also welcome to register.
