What are the next trends in the wine industry in France and in California?
France is one of the largest producers in the world. Wine is considered as part of the country’s social identity.
The U.S. is the fourth-biggest wine producing nation on the planet right after France, Spain, and Italy. California, also known as the “new world” in wine (wine regions of Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Paso Robles..) is the leading wine producing state in the country.

About the speaker: Michel Rolland The world’s most recognized oenologist & winemaker
Having grown up near Libourne, half an hour east of Bordeaux, Michel Rolland has become the most consulted and most acclaimed oenologist on the planet, making wines that appeal and accede to the highest ranks in classifications. Born to a family of winegrowers, he was destined to take over the estate, but his ambitions were higher: he wanted to understand the secret of great vintages.
Since the 1960’s he has been behind major changes in winemaking and vine husbandry, which he has promoted around the world. Today, the Rolland laboratory has seven employees and four hundred estates, which come for analyses and advice. Nicknamed “the king of blending”, Michel Rolland is passionate about every new project.
