Wine Wars: The Curse of the Blue Nun, the Miracle of Two Buck Chuck, and the Rev
The World Affairs Council presents author and International Political Economy professor, Michael Veseth, for a conversation on the major forces that are redrawing the world wine map: globalization, which presents wine consumers with a confusing "embarrassment of riches," the "miracle of Two Buck Chuck," which simplifies wine choice but threatens to over-simplify wine itself by turning it into a commodity, and the "terroirists" who Veseth hopes will save wine's soul.
Join fellow wine enthusiasts for a globalization expert's point of view of what's in your wine glass, how it got there, and what the future may hold for the global wine industry. After the presentation, please join us as we pull corks, twist screwcaps, or tap the spigot on a box of wine and decide for yourself if the global glass is half-full or half-empty.
