Viticulture in harmony with nature is the best way to reveal the authentic expression of terroir and create Great Wine. Join Neil Collins and Shelley Sale of Southern Glazer’s and taste wine from Tablas Creek (Paso Robles) + Gérard Bertrand (France) that illuminates the results of biodiverse vineyards in both the New + Old World. Biodiversity—the array of plants, animals, fungi, and microorganisms that make up a vineyard’s ecosystem—maximizes the expression of place from their vineyards, producing grapes full of intensity and character.
