Digital Wine Communications Conference announces key speakers


The Digital Wine Communications Conference in Izmir (Turkey) has announced its three keynote speakers.

It will feature American author and winemaker Randall Grahm of southern California’s Bonny Doon vineyard, and British wine journalists and International Wine Challenge IWC, co-chairmen Tim Atkin MW and Charles Metcalfe.

The fifth EWBC, sponsored by Wines of Turkey will be held at the at the Swissôtel Grand Efes – Izmir , Turkey, on November 9 – 11.

Atkin and Metcalfe, will lead one of the conference highlights, the Grand Terroir Tasting, a technical tasting of regional wines with the goal to present a broad and exciting picture of the region with wines from many lesser-known countries presented side-by-side.

The annual, three-day event is helping to build an international network of wine communicators, and also encourages the acquisition of skills and information and the exchange of expertise across national, language and professional boundaries.

More keynote speakers and participants will be announced in May at the London International Wine Fair.
