“We have
a small, but distinctive and viable wine industry here on the East Coast that
has piqued the interest of international sommeliers, researchers and media,”
says Janice Ruddock, managing director of the Winery Association of Nova
Scotia
. “This conference is an opportunity to get together, to share trends,
discuss the wine industry and to learn from each other…it’s a one-stop shop for
networking and learning the latest in wine technology and grape growing.”

The 2012
symposium offers interactive educational workshops with three concurrent
streams of learning – grape growing, winemaking and business applications for
each of the sessions. Delegates will have the opportunity to network with other
people invested in the Atlantic Canadian wine industry, high profile speakers
as well as national and international colleagues in the wine industry. They can
choose from 35 sessions over the three-day event, including an intensive
marketing workshop for wineries and pesticide certification courses for grape
growers on Sunday May 27.

The
symposium will feature key industry speakers, a supplier marketplace and wine
sampling from across the Atlantic provinces.
