Just how much has the pandemic changed the way we, um drink…. wink? Here’s an opportunity to up your wine education while dipping in to the tech-side of the wine business. All while enjoying a glass, or two.
June 4th’s panel on Back 2 Biz will focus on wine & technology — examining how the wine industry is “ripe” with technical disruption. We’ll explore issues affecting the customer-facing / demand-side of the wine business — including how technology is moving the sales, distribution, accounting, and education of the grape online and into the cloud. We’ll discuss how technology and analytic tools transform massive volumes of environmental sensor data into crop management decisions. And we’ll look at our changing climatic conditions and how wine entrepreneurs combat known weather conditions and the more recent extreme conditions.
