According to “Step Brothers” the Catalina Wine Mixer is the greatest party on earth. Think of the George Brown Wine Symposium as the older more mature version of what we can only imagine being the best freaking time ever. Knowledge is the name of the game so if learning is your jam then the symposium is set to be a full-blown rager. Set over the course of 3 days and complete with wine country excursions, this symposium is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of the wine industry.
Join winemakers, winery principals, Sommeliers, industry leaders and other hospitality executives alike for interactive and engaging seminars, workshops and presentations. As the keynote speaker Dr George Soleas, President of the LCBO reports on the ‘Business of wine in the new Global Economy: an exploration of trends in the World of Wine’ you can be sippin’ wine and feelin’ fine or, channel your inner Step Bro and be snappin’ necks and cashin’ cheques.
The George Brown Wine Symposium runs June 23rd-25th, 2018
