We have an incredible line-up of keynote speakers planned for the DIRECT Conference coming up this May. Steve Gross, Wine Institute’s VP of State Relations, is one such speaker.
Steve is the point-person for DIRECT attendees when it comes to understanding the intricacies and implications of recent and upcoming legislation. With nearly three decades of experience at the Wine Institute, Steve will use his expertise to dissect the ever-changing landscape for wine direct shippers. This is one informative presentation wine direct shippers will not want to miss!
Steve oversees the activities of Wine Institute’s six State Relations Regional Counsels and Regional Managers as they address state legislation affecting the wine industry. Additionally, he coordinates Wine Institute’s legislative and regulatory activities with staff, contract lobbyists, and member wineries. Steve regularly participates in many national programs dealing with issues facing the wine industry, both on the legislative and regulatory levels.
