Is pink Prosecco poised to become the top rose, or are canned cocktails and hard seltzers the unstoppable rising stars? Will the high-altitude wines of South America make Argentinian and Chilean reds the next best thing to Burgundy? What’s American single malt and does it have legit whisky cred? Now in its second year after a sold-out premier in January 2020, this trade and consumer-driven wine and spirits symposium energetically and intelligently pours out the trends in the world of wine, spirits, and other beverages.

Coming this winter

This popular event began as an evening of concurrent dinners in major Big Apple restaurants, offering specially crafted menus and meet-the-chef opportunities. As we navigate the changes in our restaurant and hospitality industry, we look forward to creating opportunities and continuing to support the dining industry via our members, colleagues, friends, and sponsors.

During quarantine, we all became pros in our home kitchens, which turned into Command Central and the source for nourishment and health, comfort and community, joy and entertainment. With the landscape changed so drastically in our homes and restaurant communities, how will our kitchens and dining experiences evolve? We’ll consider the changes through engaging keynotes and conversations with top chefs, community advocates and industry leaders.
