Join the OWB in NYC: Winery registration now open for Oregon Wine Trail event in Manhattan week of May 6, 2019

OWB’s Oregon Wine Trail consumer, trade and media tasting and educational event is headed to New York, and winery registration is now open.

As previously communicated, there are 50 winery spots available, which will be allocated by region in accordance with proportional annual harvested tonnage. The regions are:

  • Willamette Valley (includes Portland wineries)
  • Southern Oregon (Rogue and Umpqua valleys)
  • Eastern Oregon (Columbia Gorge and Walla Walla Valley)

Registration by region is first-come, first-served. Any registrations exceeding a region’s allocation will be put on a waitlist. Your spot at the event will be confirmed by Nov. 16 at the latest; we will ask for your payment upon confirmation.

Winemakers, owners and/or principals should plan to attend to make the most out of opportunities to interact with decision makers. As the primary trade members that will be recruited to attend are buyers from top restaurant and independent retail accounts, participation is most suitable for wineries that are already working with a distributor in the New York market. If you are seeking representation in the market, you are urged to plan well in advance to include meetings with prospective distributors during your trip.

Let’s join together to show the country’s top fine wine market all that Oregon wine has to offer. Click here to register.
