Columbus, Ohio—Everyone in the wine industry knows that it takes one set of skills to grow grapes and another skill set to make wine.

Donniella Winchell, executive director of the Ohio Wine Producers Association (OWPA), recognized that few conferences were paying much attention to the business components of getting into the wine industry.
