The Eastern Winery Exposition will move to The Oncenter convention center in Syracuse, N.Y. in 2015.
 
Warwick, R.I.—One of the East coast’s largest wine and viticulture expositions is moving to Syracuse, N.Y., in 2015.

Bob Mignarri, manager of the Eastern Winery Exposition (EWE) announced today that the show will take place at The Oncenter in Syracuse March 17-20, 2015.

The EWE has been held in Lancaster, Pa., since its founding in 2012. The show will take place there this year from March 3 to 6 and Mignarri said it will return to Lancaster in 2016.

In a press release announcing the change, Mignarri said the conference center in Syracuse offers the show a state-of-the-art facility and means less traveling time for vintners and growers in New York and Canada. “Syracuse will offer the wineries and vineyards in the Finger Lakes, Niagara and Ontario, Canada, areas easier geographical access to EWE and wineries in New England and other parts of the East will still be within driving distance,” he said. “Syracuse has a lot to offer in terms of affordable first class hotels, a conveniently located airport and a variety of top notch restaurants.”

Carlo DeVito, owner of Hudson-Chatham Winery in Ghent, N.Y. said he was “thrilled” by the announcement EWE would be in Syracuse next year. “EWE continues to be a driving force in East Coast wines both through its seminars and through its trade show,” he said in a statement.

The 2014 EWE, which is sponsored by Wines & Vines, is expected to draw more than 1,000 people from nearly two dozen U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. Spaces for the trade show floor have already been sold out to 179 companies.

The show features 22 sessions plus two half-day workshops and several social and networking events. On Monday, March 3, the exposition begins with a craft brandy-distilling workshop followed by a welcome wine reception.

Expo sessions cover winemaking, viticulture, marketing and business management. In addition to expert discussions and advice, the expo also offers a set of sessions for newcomers to the wine industry such as a panel discussion on starting a small winery by the owners of three successful wineries.

Some of the topics covered during the technical sessions include tannin additions, cold stabilization and reducing bunch rot.

On Tuesday, March 4, Tom Kelly, the president of the Virginia Vineyards Association and Dr. Gary Pavlis of Rutgers University will discuss how to increase the supply of wine grapes in the Eastern United States.

Two winemaking sessions on Wednesday, March 5, will feature four expert winemakers discussing how to craft better Bordeaux blend wines.

The EWE Industry Celebration Dinner on Tuesday, March 4, will feature the lifetime achievement award ceremony. Douglas Moorhead, owner of Presque Isle Wine Cellars in North East, Pa., received the award in 2013.
