The 2021 Canadian Wine & Liquor Law Conference will be held online on February 25th. This conference is the successor to the annual BC Wine & Liquor Law conference which was originally launched in Vancouver in 2009 and subsequently held in association with the Vancouver International Wine Festival. The conference is now sponsored by AIDV which is the French acronym for the International Wine Law Association.
Each year the conference has always been a must-attend event for anyone interested in or working in the area of wine and liquor law or policy. This year is no different with an impressive line-up of speakers. There is a national regulatory update, sessions on geographic indicators, various panels on international trade and a discussion of counterfeiting and wine fraud (featuring Maureen Downey who appeared in the Sour Grapes movie which dealt with the Kurniawan case!).
