Wine Seminars

Sunday, Sept. 10 - Tom Consentino

#1 History of New Jersey’s Wine industry
- Who were the founding fathers of NJ wine? How did a French wine maker find paradise in Egg Harbor Township and why did prohibition stunt the growth of New Jersey wine? We will explore the history of New Jersey’s wine industry from colonial days to prohibition to the modern era and discuss the important legislation and changes in wine making styles that has saw the industry rise to 50 current wineries today.

#2 What is an AVA region and what role does it play in winemaking? - American Viticultural Areas (AVA) are official United States wine grape growing regions. They are based on the French AOC system and designated by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. In order for a region to be approved as an AVA, it must be able to prove its identity as a region that is beneficial to grape growing. Some of the criteria used by the Federal government to determine whether an area meets this standard include distinct climate, soil type, elevation and other physical features as well as a history or wine grape growing. New Jersey has three AVA regions and is about to add a fourth in Cape May. We will discuss the importance of each to the state’s growth as a wine producing region.

Tom Cosentino is the Executive Director of the Garden State Wine Growers Association (GSWGA), the statewide advocacy and promotional channel of the New Jersey wine industry. He has over 30 years of strategic media relations, marketing communications and brand-building expertise in the public relations industry.
