7 C’s Winery celebrates the First-Ever Wine Tourism Day in North America

April 8th, 2013

The first-ever Wine Tourism Day in North America will take place on Saturday, May 11th, 2013 with wineries, hotels, restaurants, and other businesses offering a variety of events to the public throughout North America. 7C’s Winery will be participating in Wine Tourism Day to mark this day for Southwest Missouri wine lovers.

There are now over 7500 wineries in 205 American Viticulture Areas, 38 authorized wine appellations in Canada, and another 40 appellations in Mexico. Most of these wine regions and many of these wineries are dependent on visitors who sleep in hotel beds, eat in restaurants, and buy wine from cellar doors. Wine tourism is very important to the success of many local economies and is a subject worth commemorating.

Locally, 7C’s Winery is offering a Wine Tourism Day at 7C’s Winery from 10 am to 6 pm at its location at 502 E 560th Road, Walnut Grove, MO.

The idea for a Wine Tourism Day comes from Europe, where the European Day of Wine Tourism has been ongoing since 2009. Attendees of the 2012 Wine Tourism Conference, an annual gathering of the industry’s leaders, discussed bringing the concept to North America.
