Summit Postponement

Due to the uncertainty of the next few months caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Summit partner organizers have decided to postpone the 2020 U.S. Sustainable Winegrowing Summit. Please join us in Long Island on our new dates of April 20-21, 2021.  

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes for those of you who have already made travel plans. Please note that many airlines are currently providing special accommodations to travelers who need to cancel or change their flight plans. If you booked a hotel room, please remember to call and cancel your reservation in advance to avoid fees. 

Thank you for understanding, and we hope to see you in April 2021.
