Emerging Winemakers Competition and Symposium

Seminars & Speakers

Since 2018, the Emerging Winemakers Competition and Symposium has presented some amazing and very informative speakers and seminars. Seminars that have ranged in topics from good sanitation cellar practice, traditional and non-traditional wine styles, choosing the right root-stock for your soil and climate, yeast choice; and how or how not to launch a wine brand.

stay tuned for a listing of our 2021 Emerging Winemakers VIRTUAL Speakers and seminars

For the 2021 Emerging Winemakers Competition and Symposium we will be virtually presenting a total of six seminars. Stay tuned for more details, on the two virtual seminars presentations Friday evening April 23rd, and the remaining four virtual seminars will be presented on Saturday April 24, 2021 and the Virtual Competition Awards Ceremony.
