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.
Today, with Rodrigo Sepulveda Schulz, founder of Expon Capital, we discuss the world of technology investing and how the current economic climate is affecting this space. Rodrigo discusses the four major technology milestones the world has seen thus far and his thoughts on how technology is, and should be used, to disrupt the fine wine world.
What are the forces disrupting the business world? How many of these apply to wine? For insights, ARENI spoke to guru Minter Dial, an accomplished and award-winning speaker, author and film maker, known for his thoughts on branding, new technologies and team building. He is the author of Heartificial Empathy (2018) and Futureproof: How to Get Your Business Ready for the next Disruption, co-authored with Caleb Storkey (2017).
Though digital conversations are being useful to establish a regular level of connection, are they still relevant when it comes to etablishing trust, complicity or intimacy? How can Fine Wine, a social and human product that is meant to be shared, can create new paradigms to thrive in the digital world?
On April 25th, Pauline Vicard, our Executive Director, had the opportunity to participate in the London Technology Club’s second Future Technology Series event featuring Wine. Topics included technology used to support older methods of grape production with Apps able to monitor weather conditions affecting vines, technology to tackle counterfeiting and monitor storage conditions whilst wines are in transit, as well as insights into how our senses affect the overall experience of wine.
