Keynote Speaker Luncheon

Noted New York Times wine critic, columnist, and book author Eric Asimov, will open the  2017 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium as the Keynote Speaker during the luncheon on Tuesday, January 24.

Asimov’s extraordinarily diverse experience with wine spans the globe and includes an intimate familiarity with numerous growers and winemakers and their stories.

Before he started writing full-time about wine for The Times in 2004, Asimov wrote primarily about restaurants and food. In 1992, he created the ‘$25 and Under’ restaurant reviews, which he wrote for The Times through 2004. Asimov became The Times’ chief wine critic, and since 1995, has authored a number of books on food and wine including, “How to Love Wine: A Memoir and Manifesto.”


This Tuesday luncheon is priced separately and includes plated lunch and wine.
