Meeting Description: The Nature Conservancy of NYC Presents: Message in a Barrel: Drinking Wine in a Changing Climate
Join us for a discussion and wine tasting as we explore the connections between global climate change and the world of wine.
Is your favorite chardonnay or pinot noir eco-friendly? Does that coveted bottle have a carbon footprint? What does global warming mean for the history and culture of winemaking around the world? And how will it affect you?
Find out these answers and more as our panelists present three distinct but intertwined viewpoints on this brave new frontier in the world of wine.
Wine tasting and hors d'oeuvres will be provided!
A special thanks to Michael Skurnik Wines for their generous donation.

Attendance Policy Reminder:
Please be courteous when you RSVP for an event.
If you RSVP "Yes" and then are no longer able to attend you need to change your RSVP to "No" to allow others to attend. If you are a No-Show we will be keeping track and after three No-Shows (three times you RSVP yes and then do not attend a Meetup) you will no longer be able to RSVP Yes to attend limited space events until you have three perfect attendances.
