Eastern Winery Exposition’s Trade Show

2013 Eastern Winery Exposition Trade Show

On Thursday, the day after Terry’s presentation at the Eastern Winery Exposition, in Lancaster Pennsylvania, we attended the trade show. The exhibit was designed with winemakers, winery owners, viticulturists and tasting room managers in mind.

Winemakers may be interested in the variety of oak barrels available. Or at the high cost of a traditional oak barrel they might want to look at the display by Wine Stix. This company offers a selection of oak staves, tethers and segments, all available at four toast levels. Bottling equipment from small hand items to a bottling line were available to browse. Several closure companies including cork companies displayed their types of wine bottle closures. We stopped at Reliable Cork Solutions to learn about their SlimCork line. We also  stopped at the Nomacorc display and visited with one of the representatives, Whitney Rigsbee, whom we met earlier at the 2012 Wine Bloggers Conference in Portland, Oregon.

Vineyardists will want to look at the numerous companies offering pruning and netting products. We commented on the display of pneumatic pruning shears that looked potentially finger threatening but it sure would make pruning easy. One company offered deer netting solutions; others had bird netting.

Tasting room managers would find an array of giftware to add to their tasting room. Items include wine charms, shirts, and numerous other items. One of the more interesting ideas was The Wine-Tapa, a wineglass cover designed to keep fruit flies out of your glass.

For those interested in learning more about winemaking, Enology & Viticulture Programs Central Pennsylvania’s Community College provided information on their options.

Trade shows that occur across the country provide, winemakers with the opportunity to view products talk with representatives all gathered together in one place.
