Panelist: Jim Traister, HospitalityFan
Drink Local Means Travel Local (IBC Nimitz Room): “Drink local” and “eat local” are not just buzzwords but philosophies of life for many consumers. This includes not only tourists who wish to try the local wine but also locals eager to visit their neighbor wineries. This panel of Texans includes food, drink, and travel writer Jessica Dupuy; owner Ross Burtwell of the wine-focused Cabernet Grill restaurant in Fredericksburg; and hospitality industry consultant Jim Traister. Our moderator will be Jeff Siegel, wine writer and co-founder of the Drink Local Wine Conference.
