The 5th edition of our annual ‘Wine conversations’ event was a great success. Nearly 200 individuals attended the 3 debates/tastings sessions focused on topics from new manufacturing trends to wine consumption. Hinged on exchange and sharing, this forum is eagerly awaited in the sector and this year we had to push back the furniture and unfortunately turn people away!
Experienced speakers were particularly appreciated: Brian Phillips (Darden restaurants), Greg Martellotto (Bighammerwines.com and Vivino), Peter Granoff (Ferry Plaza wine merchant). Sharing their analysis of the market, the group was completed by recognized winemakers: Jeremy Leffert of the Rabble Wine Company in Paso Robles and Guillaume Large from the Maison Louis Jadot in Napa and Willamette.
The traditional blind tasting assembly, presented by the Master Sommelier Evan Golstein was oriented towards wines of the world. A unique opportunity for all guests to enjoy French, Chilean, and Australian wines... Diam corked obviously!
