KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Hundreds of grape farmers, wine makers, and vendors are packing into the Three Rivers Convention Center this week for the Annual Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers Conference. The Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers (WAWGG) advocates for the Washington wine growing industry by educating, promoting, representing, and unifying the industry and fostering a positive business environment for continued growth and production of world-class, Washington-grown wines.
The four day event is designed for those in the wine industry to meet and exchange ideas and see what's new on the market place. Everything form a trade-show at the Toyota Center Wednesday-Friday to sessions and seminars that cover tasting room training, learning about managing risks inside a winery, even a class on understanding the Affordable Care Act.
Tuesday, hundreds attended the "Is It Really The Glass?" class on how the same wine can taste different depending on the shape of the glass it's served in.
