New Wine Products & Alternative Packaging (includes wine tasting)
Winemaking Session in Spanish

(Presented in Spanish)

This session is based on attending an enology or viticulture session in Spanish (10:45 am-noon) and the General Session in Spanish. You must attend two sessions to receive a certificate. A certificate of attendance
will be sent after the conference.

The wine industry is experiencing a shift in consumer preference towards organic, clean/zero waste, sustainable and easy to drink wines and its products. With the packaging in alternative containers that are more environmentally friendly we are seeing an increase in new wine packaging options, ingredients labeling and new wine products. Our speakers will explain in this session the winemaking behind these new wines and wine products; and its alternative and more sustainable packaging options.
