One of the most important and essential functions of the WineAmerica staff is getting our message out to members and non-members across the country. Wineries and State Winery Associations need to know what we are doing to protect their interests in Washington, DC. To get our message out, the WineAmerica staff has been and will be traveling to various parts of the country to speak at various meetings and conferences as well as visiting our member wineries. Additionally, we are always looking to recruit new members. Here is a breakdown of our travel this winter and early spring:
