Future of Wine & Technology Virtual Event

June 4th’s panel on Back 2 Biz focused on wine & technology — examining how the wine industry is “ripe” with technical disruption. We explored 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 discussed how technology and analytic tools transform massive volumes of environmental sensor data into crop management decisions. And we looked at our changing climatic conditions and how wine entrepreneurs combat known weather conditions and the more recent extreme conditions.

Bring your favorite glass of wine or beverage and enjoy the conversation!
