Wine guru Robert Joseph will host the first-ever talk show on bulk wine as part of this year’s virtual World Bulk Wine Exhibition (WBWE)’s ‘WBWE Connect’, aiming to shed light on one of the most prominent fields of the future.
Bulk is the wine category that generates the most turnover within the global wine sector annually.
The Bulk Wine Talks premiered yesterday at 18.00 (CET) starting with a conversation between Robert Joseph and Felicity Carter, editor-in-chief of Meininger’s Wine Business International.
Tomorrow (25 November), Robert will host a talk entitled ‘From Drought to Normality: The Future of South Africa’ along with Origin Vineyards’ Bernard Fontannaz.
