The Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association (ASWA) 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.
We are an organization dedicated to the promotion of East Coast wines, wineries and winemakers.

Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association Wine Competition 2017

Scheduled for August 18-20th, 2017

We are pleased to inform you that the 13th Annual Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association Wine Competition has been scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, August 18th and 20th, at The Regency at Dominion Valley Country Club, Haymarket, Northern Virginia under the established, professional management of the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association.

The Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association, originally founded as the Vinifera Wine Growers Association and renamed in 2008 to reflect its more regional approach, has since 1973 gained national and international recognition for activities promoting the growth and economical viability of the American wine industry. It has had a particular focus on the wine producing regions of the east coast, and in conducting fair and competent wine competitions. The purpose of this year’s competition will be, as always, to judge the quality and marketability of Vinifera, Native American, and French Hybrid grape varietals including sweet wines, grown and produced in the Atlantic Seaboard states. You will find included with this letter an application for the wine competition, the category list of wines, the guidelines and address labels. We are looking forward to your joining us again this year.

All due efforts will be given to publicizing and promoting the marketing opportunities of the competition’s winning wines. We encourage your participation to further promote the wine producing regions of the East Coast.
