A panel of winery principals will discuss the cause-and-effect of what happens in the vineyard and in the winery to what’s made in the bottle and is enjoyed in the glass. Does manipulation in the winery obfuscate the imprint of vineyard? How much of what we perceive as sense of place is due to the human hand? What truth is there in our notion of “Terroir”?

Sponsored by the participating wineries.

Moderator: Mark Shipway

Panelists: Matias Barros, Joan Cusine, Matt Dumayne, Thomas Grootveldt, Antonio Morescalchi
