Join Fabio Parasecoli, associate professor and co-chair of the Food Studies Program at The New School, Michele Manelli, president and winemaker of Salcheto Winery, and professor Lorenzo Zanni from the University of Siena for a presentation of the Italian Report on Wine Sustainability.

This work was produced by the Italian Forum for Wine Sustainability, a group supported by Unione Italiana Vini and Gambero Rosso, with over 30 members from universities, research centers, certification bodies and associations who are promoting a sustainable wine business model across production and markets. Over 1,000 Italian wineries participated in a survey to accurately access the progression of sustainable winemaking in Italy.

A roundtable discussion on sustainability in the wine industry follows moderated by Professor Parasecoli with featured panelists to include Michele Manelli, Dr. Vino blogger Dr. Tyler Colman, and Bruce Schneider from the Gotham Project. They will discuss sustainability issues and challenges within the wine industry in Europe and the U.S., including cultural, macro economic and business practices with a goal of defining best practices. 

Following the panel discussion, we will taste four different Italian wines at a delectable reception.

Sponsored by the New School Food Studies Program, Salcheto Winery, Unione Italiana Vini, and Gambero Rosso.
