Lifetime Achievement Award Given to
Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars
The third annual Eastern Winery Exposition (EWE) concluded its three-day conference and wine industry exposition with another successful show at over 1,500 total attendance (over 1,000 attendees and 500 exhibitor staff). EWE featured a sold-out trade show with 249 booth spaces with 179 exhibiting companies. The trade show and conference is sponsored by Wines & Vines and supported by 18 other organizations and associations.
At the annual Industry Celebration Dinner, the Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars for continued success as New York’s most awarded winery, having celebrated 50 years of operation in 2012 and in passing the torch to a new, fourth generation. Accepting the award on behalf of the winery was current owner and president, Frederick Frank.
In 2015, EWE will move to the Oncenter in Syracuse, NY from March 17-20, then return to the Lancaster County Convention Center and Marriott in 2016. The Eastern Winery Exposition is an Eastern-focused wine industry trade show and conference designed to provide the Eastern U.S. and Canadian wineries and vineyards with an easily accessible, low-cost professional meeting with a large number of winery and vineyard suppliers, at the right time of year.  Information is online at http://www.easternwineryexposition.com.
