This one-day, online conference will continue to explore how the California Wine industry is being impacted by the legalization of recreational cannabis consumption.
The 2020 virtual symposium consisted of 3 educational sessions featuring leading experts from both categories who shared their thoughts and expertise on the opportunities and potential threats to wine, both from a business and industry perspective.
"Our objective from day one when we launched the Wine & Weed Symposium in 2016 was to educate our wine industry audience on the potential impact, good and bad, that the legalization of cannabis might have on wine," said George Christie, President of Wine Industry Network. "Four years later, many questions remain unanswered, but one thing has not changed, in California, the cannabis industry is here to stay and it’s presence will continue to be felt by the wine industry one way or another. Wine industry professionals who want to minimize the guesswork of what exactly that impact will be, need to be here because we’re the only ones tackling this topic."
