The Green Wine Future 2022 conference was the most ambitious event of its kind, says New Zealand Winegrowers Sustainability Advisor Tessa Chilala in summarising the "exhaustive programme".
The four-day event aims to be the most important and ambitious conference for the wine industry in tackling the most pressing issues affecting our society.
More than 100 speakers from around the world will speak on sustainable initiatives and strategies that can help mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis in the world of wine. Among them will be actor and Central Otago Pinot Noir grower Sam Neill, and New Zealand Winegrowers (NZW) General Manager, Sustainability, Dr Edwin Massey, who will join a panel discussion led by Master of Wine Andrew Caillard, on Government's role in tackling climate change. In a podcast leading up to the conference NZW's Nicky Grandorge will speak to Diana Hawkins, from the Responsible Hedonist, on New Zealand's Women in Wine initiatives.
