  • Nicolas Laurent, Cult Wines to explain how to invest in wine like you would invest on the financial markets,

  • Oliver Mumenthaler, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate / Michelin Guide – to describe what has become the leading wine publication influencing serious wine buyers around the globe

The panel discussion will be moderated by Mimi Giraud GEMBA’18.

We will of course end with a wine networking session with Hannes Hantze GEMBA'19, owner of the Wine Provision Shop. He will introduce us to an Italian boutique wine called RUCHE “VIGNA DEL PARROCO” (Luca Ferraris, Piedmont, Italy).

Hannes Hantze GEMBA'19 - owner Wine Provision Shop

Hannes Hantze

“Vigna del Parroco” is a rarity from the original 1.4 hectare priest’s vineyard , an iconic, yet approachable wine with soft tannins and a very aromatic floral bouquet. Ruche Winery originates from the hilly area of Castagnole Monferrato, near Asti. Its chief characteristic is a rich concentration of polyphenols, expressed mainly as tannins, which build good structure into the wine.
