SPECIAL EVENT: Exploring Sustainable Winegrowing Masterclass & Panel Discussion



From Grapes to Glass - What does sustainability mean for wine quality?

Sustainable winegrowing is about protecting the environment, being a good neighbor and employer and maintaining a thriving long-term business, but how does it benefit wine consumers? Explore the connection between sustainable winegrowing practices and wine quality with David Glancy and Allison Jordan and a panel of industry recognized experts.

Gain insight into current consumer understanding and perceptions through recent Wine Intelligence research, then learn the real differences between Sustainable, Organic and Biodynamic and how you can explain it to others.   Taste wines from seven award winning producers including Spottswoode, Francis Ford Coppola Winery, and Brewer-Clifton, and hear directly from panelists:

  • Sebastian Donoso, winemaker for Bonterra and The Butler
  • Robbie Meyer, winemaker for Wente's Murietta's Well, and 
  • Sandy Walheim, winemaker for Francis Ford Coppola and Virginia Dare Winery and the Archimedes

Hear how and why these experts have integrated sustainable winegrowing and production into their businesses and the end result in your glass.
