SYRACUSE -- The biggest winery and vineyard trade show in the East, and the second largest in the nation, is about ready to pop its cork in downtown Syracuse.Go here for the full story.
The Eastern Winery Exposition returns to the Oncenter on Wednesday through Friday, March 22-24. The event last was held in Syracuse in 2015.
The expo lures almost 2,000 visitors. Some are exhibitors, showing everything from vine trellis systems to bottle- and barrel-washers to fermentation tanks and chilling units. Others are experts who will conduct seminars on topics ranging from new containers (think cans and plastic pouches) to the next big red wine varietal for cool-climate wineries (Lemberger, perhaps). The rest are people who own or work in wineries, vineyards and related businesses from as far as Canada, the Atlantic Coast, the South and the Midwest.
