Fernando Beteta, MS to speak and host a master class at 2024 USA Trade Tasting


USA Trade Tasting 2024 is pleased to share that Wines of Beaujolais will be hosting a seminar on ‘Beneath Beaujolais’ on May 22 in Chicago.

Wines of Beaujolais session will be hosted by Greg Van Wagner and Fernando Beteta, MS. If you have not yet secured your visitor tickets, it's time to get your tickets and plan your USATT day.

Beneath Beaujolais offers a soil-first perspective of the region accompanied by an in-depth, analytical tasting. The understanding of the unique terroir of Beaujolais has reached new levels with the completion of the Sigales soil study in 2017. This project spanned ten years, involved thousands of soil samples, and confirmed winegrowers' hypothesis that Beaujolais might be the most geodiverse wine region in the world. Powered by an evolved and interactive guide of Beaujolais' mosaic of soil, this unique seminar explores the region plot-by-plot while tasting through an eye-opening lineup of wines. #BeaujolaisWines
