with Whitney Beaman
What is sustainable wine, really? Ask five different people and you’ll get five different answers – maybe more! This is because sustainability is a catchall for the work winegrowers can do to conserve resources and make great wine for the long haul. Join us to discover how wineries in three of New York’s major AVAs are adapting to changes in climate and consumer preferences. Finally, taste the ultimate fruits of their sustainable farming practices through the five wines being featured in this seminar.
