A comprehensive look at the benefits of the NYWGF program, including information from successful exporters.
Have you ever wondered how some New York wineries are selling their products successfully in international markets and garnering worldwide press? Much of the behind the scenes work is done by the New York Wine & Grape Foundation’s Export Program. Through a grant from the USDA’s Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS) and the Market Access Program (MAP), we assist New York wineries seeking to explore opportunities in markets abroad.
The Export Program for 2020 is about to begin and all New York State wineries are invited to participate. Export participants do not have to be current members of the New York Wine & Grape Foundation. Even as we are wrapping up initiatives from the last program year (July 1st, 2019 – June 30th, 2020) our team is already working in partnership with our consultants on developing a schedule of marketing activities for the upcoming Export Program year beginning on July 1st, 2020.
This webinar was recorded by the New York Wines Export Team (Valerie Ross, Sam Filler, and Sarah Gelpi) on July 9th from 11 AM to 12 PM as a comprehensive program overview. We also welcomed Kelby James Russell of Red Newt Cellars, a long time program participant, to share Red Newt’s experience and give you practical insight on how to make the Export Program work best for you!
