Wine Law Forum™ 2015: Promoting and Protecting AVAs

2 hours MCLE Credit

 

An appellation designation can be a valuable marketing asset, but you have to know how to use it. Securing AVA approval from the Department of Treasury’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (“TTB”) is just the first step for U.S. wine regions. The bigger challenge is in maintaining the viability of the AVA and promoting the AVA “brand.”

 

The TTB recently approved 11 new American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) designations for the Paso Robles area. Now the goal is to promote and protect the AVA. Further south, the well-established Sta. Rita Hills AVA is facing a petition that would expand its boundaries. Join us for a discussion with leaders from central California winegrower organizations.

Wine Law Forum™ 2015: Water and Wine—California

1.5 hours MCLE Credit

 

In the Spring of 2015, the Governor asked Californians—both residents and business—to reduce water use by 25%. However, vineyards and other agricultural enterprises, which use about 80% of California’s water, are exempt. As residents feel the impact of the drought more and more, California’s wine producers have become an easy political and media target. The last year has seen unprecedented water rights challenges and regulations. Our panelists will bring you up-to-date on the latest developments.

Wine Law Forum™ 2015: Water and Wine—Paso Robles

1.5 hours MCLE Credit

 

Paso Robles is an up-and-coming wine region, with increasing acclaim and demand. Over the last 15 years, harvested wine grape acreage around Paso Robles has nearly quintupled. For the last several years, however, this region has also been in the grips of a severe drought. Wells are running dry, prompting local governments to enact a moratorium on new vineyards while everyone tries to sort out increasing tensions between local residents and the vineyards. Join us as we take a closer look at the water wars of Paso Robles and the actions being taken on a local level.

Wineries face enormous challenges in trying to compete in an increasingly crowded market and, at the same time, comply with federal, state, and local laws and regulations.  They want to reach customers and retail clients beyond their tasting room, manage distributor relationships, and be able to foster a positive relationship with neighbor in their immediate community, but doing so entails keen attention to the legal landscape.  In this Forum, we explore some of the more pressing issues facing wine industry members today.

1.5 hours MCLE Credit

 

Not everyone is happy with the success that wineries have had in attracting tasting room visitors to agricultural regions.
