Dana Nigro - Wine Spectator

En partenariat avec Wine Spectator

L’impact du changement climatique sur la viticulture est un des grands défis auxquels la communauté internationale du vin est confrontée. Pour faire face à cette problématique, Vinexpo et Wine Spectator organisent une table ronde qui réunira des vignerons pionniers d’une viticulture durable, des scientifiques et des experts politiques (dimanche 18 juin, 15h00-17h00).
Dana Nigro, rédactrice en chef adjointe du magazine Wine Spectator, animera les débats. Les spécialistes feront un point scientifique complet sur l’état actuel du changement climatique, le contenu de l’accord de Paris et autres initiatives intergouvernementales. Les vignerons aborderont les défis auxquels ils doivent faire face et les solutions qu’ils ont mises en place.
