Trade Tastings, presented by ContainerWorld
Trade Tastings are the best opportunity to explore the Tasting Room with your industry peers. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet wine producers from around the world, to taste rare wines, and perhaps to discover the next big thing in the industry. The first hour in the room (1:30-2:30 pm) is reserved for trade buyers and executive chefs only, providing the time and freedom to taste wines and connect with wine industry personalities away from the crowds.
Pivoting the Pandemic & Beyond
This industry plenary will explore the pivots and evolutions from the past two years, jumpstarting a conversation about the future of our industry.
