Diversity and Trends in Cabernet Sauvignon
General Session in Spanish
This Track is based on attending a winemaking OR a grapegrowing session (10:45 am – Noon) AND the general session (9:00 am – 10:30 am). You must complete two of the three sessions to qualify for the certificate. A certificate of completion will be mailed after the conference.
Growing regions, winemaking techniques and vinicultural practices have a great impact on the production of Cabernet Sauvignon and the resulting wine styles. In addition, changes in consumer preferences have also contributed in shaping the styles of the wines. This session will present information about markets, demographic preferences and their impact on the type of Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Technical aspects of winemaking and grape growing that define the style of the wine will be also discussed. Presentations will be followed by a tasting of different styles of Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
