2021 Central Coast Insights Agenda
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.
For the second time in its history, Central Coast Insights, the economic and financial conference for the Central Coast wine industry, will virtually bring expert speakers together to offer guidance on vineyard and winery economics, financial issues and business, sales and grape-growing trends.
This year's topics and panels include:
Curtis Mann – Albertsons Companies
Matt Murphy – Presqu’ile Winery
Jenny Williamson Dore – Foxen Winery
E-commerce is all about putting your wine in front of consumers, however they choose to buy. This session will dive into the many ways that e-commerce has grown in the last few years, and how wineries are taking advantage of various platforms to boost sales.
Speakers: Audra Cooper & William Goebel – Turrentine Brokerage
A short crop and wildfires evened out the bulk market, which was long prior to the 2020 harvest. Now that inventories are depleted for Central Coast fruit and prices have risen, what can we expect to see in the market through the rest of the year? Will the vine pulls from Central Coast vineyards leave the region in balance?
Speaker: Andrew Nelson – War Room Cellars
War Room Cellars made waves when it purchased Bonny Doon Vineyard, a Central Coast stalwart, to add to its portfolio of Central Coast wines and private label brands. What attracted the company to the Central Coast? As a buyer, what do they see as brand worthy? And what are president Andrew Nelson’s predictions for the future of the M&A market in this region?
Carol Rounsaville – Denner Vineyards
Jude Radeski – Adelaida Vineyards
Jennifer Warrington – WISE Academy
Andrew Adams – Wine Analytics Report
Wineries in the Central Coast shipped 15 percent more wine direct to consumers in 2020; and these shipments accounted for more than 11 percent of all wine shipped DTC in the United States. The Central Coast has become a key part of the $3.7 billion DTC shipments market. This session explores the trends of the record-setting past year while also examining the most recent DTC shipments data from early 2021 to see where DTC may be headed in the coming year.
