Featuring Keynote Speaker Jon Bonné

Enjoy a buffet lunch paired with insights from keynote speaker, Jon Bonné. In the past decade, California wine has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance. The New California Wine, as Jon Bonné has called it, represents a mature, confident new era. But to get there, vintners had to learn from some past missteps. How did California regain its groove, and what lessons does it offer for a wine region like BC? Jon will share his insights as a longtime, up-close observer, expert and critic of the state’s $58 billion wine industry.

Pair your Wednesday lunch with the Wine Industry Symposium: Canada’s Place in Key Wine Markets.
