Meeting of the Creators

Talk about a modest proposal.

One of Spain’s top wine writers and a pioneer of the Priorat region, reflecting on the apparent convergence of taste that is gripping the wine industry, decided to discuss the trend with a group of the world’s top winemakers and a group of the world’s top wine writers for a two-day conference to be held in Ronda, Spain, on April 18-19. Their efforts have been rather successful, judging from a list of participants that include winemakers Peter Sisseck, Alvaro Palacios, Carlo Ferrini, Paul Draper and Denis Dubourdieu and wine writers Michel Bettane, Stephen Tanzer, James Halliday and Jancis Robinson, who is honorary president of the event.

The name of the event? Nothing less than WineCreator (told you it was a modest proposal…). Wanna go? It’ll cost you a measly 2,000 euros – just for the conference, for wine professionals. Non-professionals pay 4,000 euros including meals and lodging for two days.

With that kind of pricing, I’m hoping somebody will publish the proceedings or put videos online. It is a remarkable gathering of minds, and it would be very much worth sharing their thoughts with the world. There will be enough wine writers present to do that, right?
