Exploring the Opportunities & Issues that the Legalization of Cannabis Presents to the California Wine Industry.
First North Coast Wine & Weed Symposium A Major Success!
Wine Industry Network (WIN) hosted nearly 500 people at the first Wine & Weed Symposium on August 3, 2017 in Santa Rosa, CA. The primary focus of this one-day business conference was to help the wine industry better understand the cannabis industry and to examine what impact the legalization of recreational cannabis use in California might have on the wine industry. The goal was to identify opportunities, as well as threats, along with establishing a dialogue between the two industries.
Despite the legalization at the state level, regional rules vary, so in 2018 we are adding a second conference. Wine & Weed Central Coast will focus on the impact legalization will have in Monterey, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties while Wine & Weed North Coast will build on the inaugural event and concentrate on Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino counties.
