British Columbia as a Wine Territory:
Catalyzing Shared Understanding of its Identity

Creativity and Voice in a Successful Economy

Thursday 23rd November 2017,

noon - 1:00 pm -  Penticton Public Library

The third speaker in the series deals with the role of creativity in the expression of voice. Sacchetti’s particular
concern is voice that brings about wider participation in socio-economic processes. She focuses on innovative
ways to influence the economic emancipation of regions and localities, and reflects on what people in a particular
context may do or want to do - in terms of their aspirations and actions - to impact the development of their
region. In addressing these issues, attention is drawn to lessons and implications for the BC wine industry.
Sacchetti is interested in the development of inclusive economies and localities, and building inclusive relations
amongst communities of interest at all societal levels.

2017 Winemakers’ & Viticulturists’ Forum

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery

Thursday, 07 December 2017
1:30pm – 3:30pm

After party - Black Hills Estate Winery 

The BC Wine Institute is inviting winemakers and viticulturalists to discuss the 2017 vintage and crush. This discussion provides important context for the BCWI’s annual vintage report. Anecdotal reports indicate another quality vintage, but it’s important they hear directly from the professionals. The forum will be conducted by Rhys Pender, Master of Wine. Come spend some time catching up with your wine neighbours. Then share your latest wine sample at the Harvest End after-party! The party will be hosted by Black Hills Estate Winery at 4:30pm. Please respond directly to for the party.
