Emily Wines to Discuss State of the Wine Business at WiVi Central Coast 2013


Date: 02/14/13

In a region-specific panel led by Cyril Penn, editor of Wine Business Monthly, three prominent Central Coast leaders will open up WiVi Central Coast 2013 with a discussion of the state of the wine business in the region. Mark Couchman, president of Silverado Premium Properties; John Kochis, national sales director at E&J Gallo; and Emily Wines, master sommelier and director of wines at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will talk about some of the latest growth, winemaking, viticulture and sales trends specific to the Central Coast.

Emily Wines is one of only 96 Master Sommeliers in the country, and was also awarded the prestigious Remi Krug Cup for passing all three sections of the certification exam on her first attempt, and she is one of two women to ever achieve this remarkable feat. She currently is the director of wines, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants worldwide, but is based out of San Francisco, California. She is a passionate advocate for wine education and hosts Bottle Battle dinners at various Kimpton restaurants around the country and a regular Wines on Wine consumer tasting class at Fifth Floor in San Francisco.

About WiVi Central Coast 2013

California's Central Coast is quickly becoming one of the world's most popular and celebrated wine regions. Since December 2009, 95 new wineries popped up in the Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz counties. In 2012, nearly 7 million cases of wine were produced in the region. This burgeoning area faces many unique issues in its wine-growing and winemaking efforts, and WiVi Central Coast 2013, a new symposium and trade show hosted by Wine Business Monthly and Precision Ag Consulting, has been created to address those topics.

WiVi will be held March 19-20, 2013 at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, California. It is the only trade show and symposium to address the issues facing the Central Coast wine industry, one of the fastest growing regions in the country.
