Love wrapping up your day with a glass of Merlot? Does your perfect Sunday involve touring local wineries and vineyards? Is this one of your favorite episodes of I Love Lucy? If you answered yes to any of these questions, chances are you love and appreciate good wine.
And you're not alone -- according to the Sacramento Bee, upwards of 11,000 wine professionals are expected to attend the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium at the Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, California. The trade show, which kicked off on Tuesday and will run through the end of today, is "built with the joint input of growers, vintners and allied industry members" and "is the largest event of its kind in the western hemisphere."
Attendees can look forward to a diverse lineup of expert speakers. According to the trade show's Web site, wine professionals will share information about facing climate change, the state of the industry, and advertising and marketing. And of course, those attending will also snack on lots of food while sipping from custom wine glasses!
