2019 #NCWine Bloggers Summit

The group shot at Hanover Park Vineyard at last year’s #NCWine Bloggers Summit.

Content and speaker suggestions are now closed for the 2019 #NCWine Bloggers Summit!

The final agenda will be announced on Saturday, January 5, 2019.  Registration will open on that day as well.  Registration will close one week before the summit on Monday, March 18, 2019.

The summit will be held on Monday, March 25, 2019 at the Studio at Hanover Park Vineyard in Yadkinville.  Summit registration costs and other details are still being finalized.  We will also be soliciting help from sponsors.

Content Categories

We aim to have at least one session each from the first three content categories.

Blogging – We would like at least two sessions to focus on blogging.  This could be general blogging information including tips on how to improve and elevate one’s blog, how to find inspiration for blogs, researching blog facts, ethics for bloggers, why wineries need bloggers, live blogging tips and more.

Social Media – We feel at least one session on social media would be helpful to bloggers and wineries.  This might include how to optimize and elevate your social media presence, new trends in social media, hashtags and why they’re important, mobile social media how-tos, the importance of photos and videos, and much more.

North Carolina Wine Knowledge – We hope to have more bloggers from out of state join us in 2019.  It would be good to have a session all about North Carolina Wine.  This might include information on North Carolina’s wine history, AVAs, leading varietals, wine styles, challenges, successes, and more.

Pre-Summit Activities – We plan to have bloggers visit at least two wineries on Sunday, March 24, 2019.
