At the end of last month, I attended a special Young Lions of Wine event here in New York as part of the VinItaly US Tour. Rarely are there so many Masters of Wine in one room as there were for this event. Moderated by Serena Sutcliffe, MW the round table discussion touched upon contemporary issues such as climate change, growth of emerging markets, bottle closures and more. Held in the Trustees room of the New York Public Library, the event was certainly a memorable one.
