June 24, 2014

Gastronomy & Wine

How does the wine world take advantage of technological innovation? What can we expect for the future, in France and in the U.S.? Join us at the annual FACCSF Wine Conference in the beautiful setting of the Napa Valley Country Club and hear from the best experts in the field. A unique opportunity to network with leaders in wine innovation from both sides of the Atlantic and to taste some delicious food and wines in an outstanding location.

 

The conference will give participants an overview of the use of innovation in the wine business. Panelists will discuss innovations being implemented right now, how it helped them, and those that could be in the near future.

Debates moderated by Michaela Rodeno and JP Giovanni.
