We could not hold this conference and offer such an unbelievably low price to participants without the support of our sponsors and partners. Please take the time to read about them below. We will be adding more as the planning progresses!
- For sponsor information, please contact Reno Walsh at 888.758.8687 ext: 704 or firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please mention “Wine Bloggers Conference” as we also run other conferences.
- Interested in pouring your Red or White/Rosé wine at our Live Wine Blogging events during WBC18? Click here for more information and to register.
- Please note we discourage events not included in the official agenda for a variety of reasons: they often are invite only, which is against the spirit of the WBC; if planned during the WBC they pull from our scheduled events; and they take advantage of the WBC’s gathered bloggers without supporting the conference itself. If you have an idea for an event before, during, or after the conference, please contact us to discuss sponsorship.

The Red Mountain AVA is located on a southwest-facing slope in south central Washington, a three and one-half hour drive from Seattle. At 4040 acres (1,635 hectares), this is the smallest, warmest wine-grape growing region in Washington. It has a unique combination of diverse geology, gentle south slope, consistent winds and notable heat profile. A complex mixture of the most rare and highly valued soil types in Washington was created by wind-blown silt and sand over glacial outflow. The AVA’s red wine grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah are highly prized for creating wines of superb concentration and depth, which consistently earn critical acclaim.
