Winemakers Forum on Pinot Noir & Riesling

A panel of distinguished winemakers and hands-on owners share their stories and insights on Riesling and Pinot Noir, two notorious cool-climate grapes famed for breaking backs in the vineyard and hearts in the winery. Learn about their challenges in the Okanagan Valley, Niagara Peninsula, Mosel Valley and other wine regions in the world, and how it relates to what’s in your glass.

Moderator: Mark Shipway

Panelists: Tobias Busch, Ann Sperling, David Paterson, Harald Thiel, Pedro Parra
