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.

No mention was made previously of one of the major workers to bring this evening’s ASWA presentation to the public. On the left is Ms. Anne Vercelli, the ASWA West Coast Rep who pulled all the logistics together for this evening’s presentation. ASWA Vice President, Grant Crandall is next with Michele Anna Jordan in the center with ASWA President, Carl Brandhorst on right. It would not have been possible without the advance work by Ms. Vercelli in this event to high light east coast wines.

The Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association (ASWA) was invited again to be featured on the Michele Anna Jordan weekly radio talk show “Mouthful, The Wine Country’s Most Delicious Hour” on 31 January 2016.

Ms. Jordan writes three columns on food and wine for the Santa Rosa Press Democrat newspaper. She is the author of three books on wine and food and was the food critic for the San Francisco Chronicle for 15 years. Her talk show was been on the air since 1995. All performances can be heard on PODCASTS at ITUNES or at www.krcb.org.

The Association was represented by its President, Carl Brandhorst, its Vice President Grant Crandel and its West Coast Representative, Ms. Anne Vercelli of Healdsburg, CA. This was the fifth year the Association was on the show and this time, at Michele Anna Jordon’s request, ASWA highlighted eight award winning wines from the 10th annual wine competition. The competition highlights east coast wines from 17 states from Maine to Florida. The grapes must be grown and vinified within those 17 states in order to qualify for the competition.

Michele Anna Jordan at the end of the show invited ASWA back next year (2015) with some of the competition’s winning wines from the 10th annual wine competition.
