In partnership with the International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration
Academics meet market experience in a lively debate!
Featuring a dynamic panel of multi-hat wearing Canadian industry professionals. Join John Szabo MS (Ontario), Treve Ring (BC), Brad Royale (Alberta) and Véronique Rivest (Québec) in a virtual debate about the various scientific and interpretive parameters of what it means to be cool.
Featuring, and leveraging, the sensational Chardonnays of Chablis, New Zealand and Ontario, each panelist will be asked to defend, or condemn, one of the classic parameters of cool climates. Including, but not limited to, latitude, altitude, length of growing season, average temperatures, soil colour and temperature, and sunlight hours. Which is most important, and how should cool climate really be defined?
