Join international and domestic wine producers and leaders in biodynamic viticulture for three days of masterclasses and tastings at the Quintessa estate in Napa Valley, California. Focused on viticultural practices and principles that build vineyard health and resilience, this immersive and conversational symposium is ideal for wine producers, consultants, viticulturists, sommeliers and wine educators. Attendance is limited to 75 guests.
The lineup of international winery proprietors includes Chiara Pepe of Emidio Pepe, Federico Ceretto of Ceretto and Elisabetta Foradori of Foradori. Joining them are biologist Olga Barbosa, geologist and terroir specialist Brenna Quigley and journalist Samantha Cole-Johnson. The international team of hosts includes Cambium Formazione founder Adriano Zago, Biodynamic Demeter Alliance’s Daphne Amory, Montinore Estate’s Rudy Marchesi and Quintessa’s Rodrigo Soto.
Look at biodynamic agriculture from a big picture standpoint down to specific practices and practical application. The producers will share knowledge and insights gained from biodynamic transformations on both large and small scales. Biodiversity and terroir specialists will layer their lenses over our conversation, exploring farming and winegrowing in today’s changing environment.
