The collective brain power of ARENI’s contributors tracked the changes as they happened, discussing and analysing what it said about the future of wine. Here are some highlights of what we discussed in 2020.
This week we meet French researcher Emile Servan Schreiber to discuss the power of collective intelligence, and the different ways to harness, measure and maximise the efficiency of our joined brains. As we navigate our way through the “wisdom of crowds”, we also explore how women and diversity can help build better and smarter organisations.
The world of wine is not just complex, it can be baffling and difficult to enter. There are many and diverse barriers to entry – recent weeks have shown just how high those barriers remain. Given this, how can we share knowledge and the access to the people, places and wines needed to build a career?
Two leading voices discuss curiosity and sense of responsibility when it comes to how we communicate around the complex topic of wine. Does language provide or hinder access to wine information? How does it relate to the assessment of wine and to regionalism, fundamental to traditional wine producing areas? Should there be a universal language in wine?
Acclaimed journalist Elaine Chukan Brown meets living icons Bill and Will Harlan, for an exclusive and intimate discussion on succession, to hear father and son discuss their changing relationship through Harlan Estate’s and Promontory’s milestones. As Will prepares to take over from his dad, they share with us the next steps of their 200-year plan.
What is the current state of the relationship between the US and the EU? Can the rising tensions between the two friends be resolved or will the European Union need to plot a future where America is less relevant to its security? And how will these partners deal with the rise of China? How will that impact the Fine Wine trade?
With Erin Gore and Karli Warner, founders of The Garden Society, we explore the growing world of Cannabis. As we explore their strong ethos – to become the most positive and trusted cannabis brand for women, turning down the daily chaos and turning up the joy – we draw many parallel between their world and the Fine Wine Ecosystem, discussing millennials, language, terroir & provenance, and responsibility.
