Englewood, Ohio – The American Wine Society brings a world of wine to Tysons Corner, Va. for its 48th annual national conference Nov. 5-7.

The nation’s oldest and largest organization of wine consumers released the agenda for the conference, which includes more than 40 sessions, including those from Bordeaux, Champagne, Uruguay, Portugal, New Zealand, Virginia and California.  Registration for members starts Aug. 2.

The AWS selected the Washington D.C. region because of its reputation as a food and wine center and the organization’s foundation in the region.

The conference will be at Sheraton Tysons Corner, kicking off with an opening reception hosted by the Virginia Wine Marketing Board followed by two days of informational tasting session with leading personalities and wines from top regions throughout the wine world, including a plenary session and luncheon sponsored by the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux and a luncheon sponsored by Wente Vineyards.

The American Wine Society Commercial Wine Competition and the Amateur Wine Competition are held in conjunction with the conference. The organization’s wine judge certification training will also be held at the event.
