National Blogger ConferenceWine Bloggers Conference

The Wine Bloggers Conferences have usually been on the West Coast of the United States. In 2011 the conference was held in Northern Virginia. In 2015, the conference returns to the East Coast to the Finger Lakes wine region of New York. The conference takes place August 13th - 16th in Corning, New York. Corning is just south of the Finger Lakes and an easy drive to the wineries.

There are over 100 wineries in the region along the sides of mostly Cayuga, Seneca and Keuka Lakes. A fewer number of wineries are also along Canandaigua and Skaneateles Lakes. Wine Trail Traveler has visited and written about 56 of the Finger Lakes wineries/vineyards.
