Who We Are

Led by certified sommelier Carole Lawson, a group of wineries formed the Craft Wine Association in 2016 as a membership organization with the simple mission to make craft wine as available in the marketplace as craft beer and spirits.

We offer the designation of Certified Craft Wine to qualifying wineries and list wineries in our national directory so consumers can easily find you.  Members also enjoy benefits such as the sharing of industry insights and best practices, and participation in our advocacy program.  We’re on a mission to help small wineries thrive!
