The seminars will be top-notch and the ability to hear and meet key players and vintners is terrific. We are thrilled to help host this event."
Siobhan Turner, executive director of the Masters of Wines said: "On the agenda are topics of relevance and great interest to the wine world, including: climate change and how we are facing it; legislation, regulation and restriction - where does your wine get stopped; what critics are looking for; and, what the public wants, are but a few of the challenging, informative and very interesting sessions."
