ASWA Tray Award
The Atlantic Seaboard WIne Association's Board of Directors has presented the Perpetual Silver Wine Grape Productivity Tray to the NC Winegrower's Association at this years conference in January. The ASWA wished to recognize the NC Winegorwer's Association for its contributions to the growing success of the NC wine industry.
Fletcher Henderson, ASWA Vice President wanted to particularly thank the president and members of the NC Winegrower's Association for the opportunity to hear and learn more of the spectacular growth of North Carolina's wine industry from its historic roots of early Muscadine winemaking to today's production of quality Vitis Vinifera grape wines. "Your wine and grape industry, I am told is currently contributing some 1.71 billion to the state's economy, infused by some half-million tourists annually and the commercial activities of the state's reported 160 wineries".
