Wine in Moderation Autumn Symposium
Responsible Wine Tourism for a Sustainable Wine Culture
A growing trend, oenotourism is not only a source of revenue for wine regions, for the wine business value chain and for the society, but it is also revealing and safeguarding the great cultural heritage of wine. How will wine tourism develop in a socially responsible and sustainable way?
Wine tourism is the perfect opportunity to introduce the visitor to wine culture and to educate him how to best appreciate wine: in moderation and responsibly.
During this workshop, we will experience wine tourism firsthand on the beautiful island of Santorini and we will discuss about the latest trends. Through interactive sessions, we will identify the various actors involved in wine tourism and their role in promoting the Wine in Moderation message.
