Wine Business Monthly Announces Plans for WiVi Central Coast and Central Coast Insights Events

SONOMA, CA – Wine Business Monthly, the leading provider of information to the wine industry and presenters of Central Coast Insights and WiVi Central Coast, on Wednesday announced changes to the two events.

In light of continued restrictions on in-person events, Central Coast Insights will now be held as a two-day webcast on August 26-27, 2020.

However, Wine Business Monthly has made the difficult decision to delay the next convening of WiVi Central Coast tradeshow and conference until March 31, 2021.

New Digital Format for Central Coast Insights

For the first time in its history, Central Coast Insights, the economic and financial conference for the Central Coast wine industry, will be held as a two-day webcast, bringing expert speakers and guidance on vineyard and winery economics, financial issues and business, sales and grape-growing trends. A full agenda will be announced shortly. To learn more about the conference, please visit

Next WiVi Central Coast in 2021

While Wine Business monthly had hoped to be able to hold the WiVi Central Coast in August, the most recent local, state and federal guidelines still prohibit large gatherings. The health and safety of the Central Coast community remains our top priority and as such, we will delay the next edition of WiVi until March.  WiVi, the industry’s largest conference and tradeshow south of San Francisco, will be held on March 31, 2021 at the Paso Robles Event Center. More details will be available on in the coming months.

Attendees: We are contacting session pass and tradeshow pass holders with further details. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach us directly via email ( or via phone (707-940-3920).

Exhibitors: Wine Business Monthly will honor your booth contracts on the new date and are reaching out with more information. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to ( or via phone (707-940-3920).

We’re so grateful for all the support, hard work and time the Central Coast community has dedicated to making Central Coast Insights and WiVi successful.

Thank you to our speakers, advisory board, association partners, attendees, exhibitors and employees for your understanding as we put the health and safety of all members of the wine community, and their families, first.
