Come for the info stay for the wine!

We’re lucky in Central New York to live so close to some of the nation’s finest wines and winemakers – we can meander the wine trails of the the Finger Lakes, visit America’s oldest vineyard in the Hudson River Valley, and enjoy the Long Island appellation’s premium vinifera grapes.

Your clients may own vineyards, or want to become vintners, purchase an existing winery or cook up a new recipe for a fruit-centric spirit. Are you prepared to meet their needs and answer their questions?

Presented by Daniel B. Moar, Esq. of Goldberg Segalla, Of Branding and Brandy: Wine and Spirit Trademarks 101 provides an overview of trademark issues impacting wineries and distilleries and delivers practical advice on creating an enforceable trademark, while avoiding conflicts with existing trademarks competitors use.

Topics covered include:

  • What makes a strong trademark
  • Review examples of trademarks used by wineries and distilleries
  • Litigation over alcohol related trademarks

And just when you thought this CLE couldn’t get better…Cornell University food scientist Lindsay Springer, Ph.D. will also be on hand to Uncork the Science of Red Wine. Her 30-minute program discusses pigments, why aging matters, and red wine sensory qualities such as aromas, mouthfeel and flavor!
