Session

Varietal Diversity in the Golden State: Exploring Viable Climate and Marketplace Alternatives (includes tasting)
Joint Grapegrowing and Winemaking Breakout Session

In the wine business, timing is everything; and sometimes requires a leap of faith. What we plant, the styles of wine we make and how we go to market are complicated and dependent on a number of different factors.

This panel of experts will review three new and potentially suitable wine varieties for California, from the lens of the grower, the winemaker and the marketer. Can varieties like Chenin Blanc, Vermentino and Tempranillo add a new layer of commercial success to the big four? We’ll explore this question and more with an eye to grower risk-management, stylistic range and marketplace flex power in this dynamic tasting session.
