Wine Sustainability & Sensory Analysis Congresses at SIMEI 2015

milan1I am pleased to report that I will be speaking at two international wine congresses in Milan, Italy next month.

I’ll be speaking at  the International Congress on Sustainability “SUSTAINABILITY AS A TRIBUTE TO WINE QUALITY” on 3rd November 2015  and “DISCOVER THE SENSORY FACTORS” on 4th November 2015 during the 26th edition of SIMEI – International Enological and Bottling Equipment Exhibition in Milan, Italy. This event is sponsored by the Unione Italiana Vini, an association of Italian wine producers whose 500 members account for 70% of the nation’s wine.

The congresses feature innovative and interactive programs and an impressive group of speakers and participants. I am very pleased to take part! Here is a description taken from the conference website.

“For the 2015 edition of SIMEI – International Enological and Bottling Equipment Exhibition – the WORLD LEADER in wine technology and the only international biennial exhibition which presents at the same time machinery, equipment and products for production, bottling and packaging  of all drinks, Unione Italiana Vini has confirmed its commitment in the organization of global hot topics congresses.”

Prominent personalities have already been invited to participate in two complementary Steering Committees, chaired by two recognized international icons, the likes of Ettore Capri (Opera Research Centre- Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore) and Anita Oberholster (Enology Department of Viticulture and Enology- UC Davis).
 .
“Stakeholders from the wine chain will fully be involved: farmers, service providers, operators of sustainability programs, retailers and the trade in general, consumers will be called to participate in an event that will exploit modern techniques of interactive participation.”
 .
“That is the natural sequel of the International Congress that was held during Simei 2013 (SUSTAINABLE VITICULTURE AND WINE PRODUCTION: STEPS AHEAD TOWARD A GLOBAL AND LOCAL cross-fertilization).”

Here are two videos that explain the international congresses and another that shows what SIMEI is all about.

  1. Hi Mike hope that all is good with you – once you have delivered the sustainability speech, we would be privileged to post it on our site as a guest blog – with a link to The Wine Economist if desired. Best wishes from Burgundy Paul

    • That’s great news, Alessandro. Sue and I will be at the gala dinner and we will be staying on for a few days, so we should have time for a dinner before we leave.
      Cheers and best wishes.
