International Wine Tourism Conference Early-Bird Special

We have been to the last two International Wine Tourism Conferences. Thus far, the conference sites have been in Europe. In 2012 we attended the conference held in Perugia, Italy. While in Italy we visited wineries in Umbria and Campania. This year’s conference was in Zagreb, Croatia. While in Croatia we visited wineries in Istria and after the conference we returned the short distance to Italy to visit wineries in Friuli. In 2014, the conference takes place in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Of our travels to over 1,000 wineries and vineyards in North America, Europe and Oceania, the country Georgia was the most different. We discovered a people passionate about wine. We did see many wineries making modern day wines using stainless steel and oak barrels. The only difference between Georgia and the rest of the world was the grape varieties used to make those wines. Georgia has 540 different grape varieties, many are near extinction. Also in Georgia we observed and made wine in a qvevri. This is an ancient winemaking process that produces amazing whites and reds. Grapes and winemaking have an 8,000 year history in Georgia, long before the rest of the world.

This conference reaches beyond winemakers and tour operators. It is an appropriate conference for wine writers and bloggers, the general public that is interested in wine, winery staff, tasting room staff, tour guides, tour drivers, hoteliers and chefs. Anyone interested in wine and tourism will enjoy the many different offerings. You can view some of the presentations for the March 29 – 30, 2014  conference at http://www.iwinetc.com/2014georgia/speakers/
