The wine industry is booming and you will need this information to grow and thrive.
Much like the rest of the world, the wine industry is rapidly changing due to the effects of globalization. Up until the mid 19th century, the wine industry was a fragmented agricultural pursuit, primarily based on satisfying local needs. Now, this $20 billion dollar industry has experienced mass consolidation and growth through technology and emerging markets around the world. This has both benefited the industry as well as created new concerns for the future of wine as we know it.
Learn from our resident 20-year industry expert and Master of Wine Student, Ian Blackburn, about the past - current - and future of this dynamic industry. This class is perfect for someone who is trying to break into the industry, as well as for those who are looking to expand their insight in the wine-drinking world.
