10th Annual Symposium for Professional Wine Writers at Meadowood Napa Valley
St. Helena, CA
Event Type: Seminars and Classes
Description: The next Symposium for Professional Wine Writers at Meadowood Napa Valley is February 18-21, 2014. Join your peers and celebrate our tenth year with a four-day learning experience emphasizing the craft of writing, career advancement and wine knowledge.
This year’s Symposium promises the return of some of your favorite faculty, exciting new speakers and special wine tastings and surprises to commemorate this milestone anniversary. The Symposium officially takes place Tuesday through Friday, but we hope you will stay for what has become one of the best weeks in the Napa Valley wine industry beginning Monday night with The Culinary Institute of America’s Annual Vintners Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and concluding with the perennially sold-out Premiere Napa Valley barrel tasting and auction on Saturday.
Open to professional editorial writers and editors who specialize in wine, food-wine and travel-wine topics, The Symposium for Professional Wine Writers is a non-profit organization founded by Meadowood Napa Valley, the Napa Valley Vintners trade association and The Culinary Institute of America.
In addition to ten open fellowships and five Editor's Choice fellowships offered for the 2014 session, The Symposium for Professional Wine Writers is adding a new fellowship in honor of the late Frank Prial. The $1,940 value of each fellowship covers the registration fee and lodging at Meadowood. Interested professional wine writers are invited to enter writing samples for evaluation by a team of independent judges. Fellowship applications will be accepted from September 1 through November 1, 2013.
Registration for the 2014 Symposium, instructions for fellowship applications and the preliminary program schedule will be available in late summer at www.winewriterssymposium.org.
