The 2020 “Truth in Terroir” forum will focus on the world of minimal-intervention, or “natural,” wines. What does this mean in the vineyard, and in the winery? How does natural differ from organic or biodynamic? Is this a bold new market, or just another fad?  Winemakers on both sides of the natural scales will join us to discuss.

Moderator: Jon Bonné, Pier-Alexis Soulière
Panelists: Michael Bartier, Antonella Bronca, Julien Dugas, Matt Dumayne, Bernard Duseigneur, Daniel Grace,  Brent Rowland, Andrew Windsor
