Chenin blanc/petite sirah conference set
June 3, 2013
• To be held at Clarksburg’s Old Sugar Mill
• “We're developing our program with the help of area businesses”
Growers, vintners, the wine trade and consumers are expected at a two-day chenin blanc/petite sirah conference set for Aug. 22-23 at the Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg.
The conference is to offer new insights into the two varieties' special opportunities and challenges, conference officials say.
A presentation will be made honoring wine author and columnist Gerald Asher.
The Old Sugar Mill is an active event site near Sacramento, where nine wineries have tasting rooms and the Clarksburg Wine Company is headquartered.
"The conference will explore where the two varieties are grown and cultivated, plus what types and pricing are doing well in the market," says John Beckman, general manager of the Old Sugar Mill.
"We're developing our program with the help of area businesses such as Sacramento Farm to Fork and Visitsacramento.com," adds G.M. Pucilowski, the conference director.
