Wine Business Monthly Announces Plans for 2021 WiVi Central Coast and Central Coast Insights Events

Central Coast Insights conference to be held digitally on March 30, 2021; WiVi Trade Show to be postponed until 2022

SONOMA, CA – Jan. 15, 2021—Wine Business Monthly, the leading provider of information to the wine industry and presenters of Central Coast Insights and WiVi Central Coast, today announced updates to the two annual events.

In light of continued restrictions on in-person events, Central Coast Insights will now be held as a single-day webcast on Tuesday, March 30, 2021.

However, Wine Business Monthly has made the difficult decision to delay the next convening of WiVi Central Coast tradeshow until March 2022.

Digital Format for Central Coast Insights

For the second time in its history, Central Coast Insights, the economic and financial conference for the Central Coast wine industry, will be held as 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

Attendees: Registration for the conference will open on February 2, 2021. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach us directly via email ( or via phone (707-940-3920).

Next WiVi Central Coast in 2022

While Wine Business Monthly had hoped to be able to hold the WiVi Central Coast tradeshow this year, 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 2022. More details will be available on in the coming months.

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.
