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.

  • Promoting general public wine education and appreciation.
  • Promoting consumer public wine enjoyment and responsible moderate consumption as part of a healthy life style.
  • Supporting state, national, and international wine educational forums and research.
  • Supporting state and national production of quality wine and the marketability of American wines.
  • Vigorously supporting state and federal legislation thats favorable to growth and economic viability of the U.S. wine industry.
  • Strengthening cooperation with other wine organizations in addressing wine issues of common concern.
