The Trail Leads to New York City in 2019

Save the date for this and other growth opportunities coming next year

Following on the success of our first Oregon Wine Trail event in Los Angeles in April, the OWB team is excited to announce that our next domestic market for this event series will be New York City. New York is by far the top market in the country for fine wine sales, with a thriving ultra-premium category. In addition, New York City is a wine media hub and is home to the most prolific and influential restaurant scene in the country, boasting more than 100 James Beard recognized restaurants.

We’ll be heading to New York in May, and this is just one of many events happening in the first half of 2019 that you may want to put on your calendar. To help you plan your commitments, here is a list of activities for your consideration.
