Fall Meeting


Please join WineAmerica for a two-day retreat in Woodinville, Washington – 20 minutes north of Seattle – Sunday, November 13 to Tuesday, November 15, 2022.

Woodinville’s wide selection of urban wineries and tasting rooms – featuring the best of the Columbia Valley and Washington State wine’s 19 other award-wining AVA’s – offer an exciting opportunity to learn more about America’s second largest wine producing state.


Hosted by Ste. Michelle Wine Estates at their location in Woodinville, the meeting will be led by WineAmerica Chair Debra Dommen of Treasury Wine Estates and President Jim Trezise.

In addition to wine tasting and visits, WineAmerica’s Board of Directors will discuss the current state of the American wine industry and our national association’s role in protecting and promoting the wine industry’s interests in Washington, DC and beyond.

Executive Vice President, Michael Kaiser, will provide an update on government affairs, and Vice President of Development, Tara Good, will discuss the present and future of the association. A roundtable of state and regional associations will discuss activities on the state level.
