Is the Future of Fine Wine Plant-Based?

In Conversation with Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni, Mike Barrow, Watson Brown and Christophe Lavelle about the future of Fine Wine

The ARENI Global In Conversation series provides an exclusive platform for international thought-leaders to share ideas and address global issues collectively. As the growing interest in plant-based diets is already impacting the way that fine wine is being produced and distributed, what could a 100% plant-based food and beverage system look like?

According to Bloomberg, the plant-based segment is expected to exceed $162 billion,
or 7% of the global food market, within the next decade.

This podcast is a recording of a live Insight Series about the future of Fine Wines organised by ARENI on March the 2nd 2022. Award-winning journalist Elin McCoy moderates an eye-opening conversation with four international experts, including Querciabella’s owner, Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni.
