Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association
is one of the oldest wine organizations located on the East Coast. Established in 1973 as the Vinifera Wine Growers Association (VWGA), it was an early supporter of planting world-class vinifera wine grapes, the production of quality commercial wines, and the building of a wine industry along the Eastern seaboard.

ASWA judges 2018

Our Judging Panel 2018

The Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association promotes American wine produced in the seventeen eastern states: all those that touch the Atlantic Ocean plus West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Vermont. We are a trade organization founded in 1973 as the Vinifera Wine Growers Association, renamed in 2008 to reflect our expanded regional focus.

To help identify the best of the best, ASWA holds an annual wine competition, the largest in the nation focused exclusively on the wines of the East Coast. The competition is held in late summer and judged by a panel of professionals hailing from all parts of the country.

ASWA’s competition winners span the breadth and width of our region. From Chateau LaFayette-Reneau in New York and Shelburne and Newport in New England, to Barboursville and CrossKeys in Virginia and Boordy in Maryland, to Jones VonDrehle in North Carolina, our search identifies a wealth of exciting wines and dedicated winemakers, each working within his/her own terroir and following a passion for great wine. We are pleased to highlight the great work of these outstanding vineyards. Learn more:
