Healdsburg, CA, June 10th, 2021 – After a hiatus in 2020, Wine Industry Network (WIN) is excited to announce that registration is open for the 5th Annual Wine & Weed Symposium, scheduled for August 5th, 2021 from 9 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country in Santa Rosa, CA. The full-day business-focused conference will explore the latest information surrounding the impact of legalized recreational cannabis on California’s wine industry.

The symposium will feature leaders from both the wine and cannabis sectors who will share their expertise on how the emerging cannabis industry can successfully coexist alongside wine, for the betterment of both industries.

Topics to include:

  • Cannabis Category Performance Review; Surviving and Thriving
  • The Business of Cannabis; Investor Predictions for 2022
  • The Rise of Cannabis Beverages and What it Means for Wine
  • Cannabis and Wine – Friend or Foe? Complementary or Substitutable?
  • The Quantifiable Effect of Cannabis Tourism on Wine Country

In addition to the conference sessions, attendees have the opportunity to visit with exhibiting wine and cannabis companies, enjoy a beautiful outdoor lunch prepared by the Hyatt Regency Chef, and have the opportunity to attend a special end-of-day networking social featuring local wines.

“The Wine & Weed Symposium has evolved over the last 5 years to an incredibly popular business conference, with great topics, exhibitors and, of course, food and wine,” says George Christie, President and CEO of Wine Industry Network. “The best part, however, has always been our presenters, whose insights continuously leave our audience so well informed about how the wine and cannabis industries impact each other—including both opportunities and challenges.”

Registration for the event is now open. Seating is limited. Table-top exhibits and sponsorships are also limited. For more information about session topics and speakers, becoming a sponsor or exhibitor, and to register for the event, please visit wine-weed.com or email [email protected].

  1. This is the wrong message to send to
    Tourists coming to Sonoma
    It is not about getting high,
    And drinking, wine is lifestyle to be
    Enjoyed with good food and friends
    And enjoying Sonoma’s many natural
    Adventures , as a winemaker I oppose this event
