Wine Tourism & the European Wine Bloggers Conference

August 14th, 2009-- by Allan Wright

Wine Tourism has spread its wings this year, 2009. In fact, four new wine tourism conferences have popped up on the schedule this year: two in France, one in Spain, and one in South Africa. And those of us at Zephyr Adventures are in the process of creating the first-ever North American Wine Tourism Conference, planned for 2010.

But it is another wine tourism session that I want to write about here because it combines both wine tourism and blogging / social media – which is what the Travels With Wine platform is all about.  On Saturday, October 31st at the European Wine Bloggers Conference in Lisbon, Portugal wine bloggers from across Europe will meet to discuss “wine tourism and social media”.

You might not know there even is such a thing as a Wine Bloggers Conference. Well, there are actually two: one in North America and one in Europe.  The European ones are produced by our fellow wine bloggers at Catavino and this coming October 30 – November 1 will be the second annual offering.

The interesting thing about this session is the intersection of wine tourism – a huge and growing part of the tourism world – and social media, which is one of the newest and hottest form of marketing. I can’t predict what the topic will cover but certainly look forward to hearing the results!
