direct to consumer wine symposium

Presented by and a fundraiser for Free the Grapes!, the DTCWS is celebrating its 17th year as the nation’s premier winery DTC sales and marketing conference.

The symposium will be held January 17-18, 2024, and will again include keynote speeches from industry leaders and thought leaders outside the industry, practical workshop sessions, town hall-type discussions, as well as a trade show featuring the industry’s top suppliers.

Free the Grapes! works closely with industry lobbyists and regional associations to streamline onerous shipping regulations and to increase the number of legal states. Since the founding of Free the Grapes! by five industry associations, the number of legal states has grown from 17 to 47 and represent 98% of the US population. The coalition executes state-specific advocacy campaigns encouraging consumers to write to their legislators, and works with media and advocacy groups to generate press coverage in support of favorable legislation.
