Last night, Stir headed down to The Winemaker’s Club for the first of what is sure to be many Women in Wine LDN panel discussions.
After a glass of Shobbrook Riesling Eden Valley from the handy enomatic wine dispenser, the panel took to the stage, chaired by Women in Wine LDN co-founder Regine Lee. CEO of Wine Intelligence Lulie Halstead, Operations Director and Wine Buyer for JKS Restaurants Susaina Sethi and Owner of Wine Car Boot Ruth Sprivy answered questions on innovation in the wine industry, drawing on their individual experiences and expertise.
From how to communicate innovation to the consumer and comparisons between wine, spirits and craft beer, to being able to give customers what they want, whilst still exposing them to new and emerging styles, the debate ended in a heated discussion around consumer understanding and appreciation of wine.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening – we’re already raising a glass to the next one!
