Session

Beyond Sustainability: Creating ROI by Combining People, Profit and Planet
Business/Operations Breakout Session

Successful wine businesses focus on more than sustainability alone. Today’s customers and investors are increasingly demanding transparency, good stewardship, and responsible governance. Luckily, “Better for we” can also mean “Better for me.”

This session will explore triple bottom line (people, profit, planet) opportunities which create value for wine businesses and their stakeholders and customers. It is time to meet the moment where green is not only in the vineyard; it’s in the bank.

Recruiting and Retaining Talent
Business/Operations Breakout Session

The landscape for talent acquisition and retention has certainly shifted since we convened this popular panel in 2020.  External factors have changed the way people work, where people work and what they expect in compensation. 

Who is in the driver seat today may not be in the year ahead; will it be the talent, or will it be the employer?  This question looms over the entire enterprise, from the vineyard through the cellar, into the office and tasting room and out into sales and distribution.
