Start your Saturday night out right!
Join us for the Alaska World Affairs Council’s second annual wine tasting fundraiser on Saturday, March 26th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Globalization in Your Wine Glass, hosted by Wine Economist, Dr. Mike Veseth, is a delightful evening of white and red wines, locally-made hors d’oeuvres, riveting discussion exploring the global wine market, and the best of times with your fellow world-enthusiasts. You will also receive a custom Alaska World Affairs Council wine glass for use at the event and to keep as a memento.
Advance registration has now closed. Tickets will be available at the door for $70 for current AKWorld members or $85 for non-members. This event begins, and doors open, at 5:00pm.
Back by popular demand, meet Dr. Mike Veseth…
Wall Street Journal wine columnist Lettie Teague writes that “Of all the wine blogs in the wide, wide blogosphere, one that I look forward to reading the most is Mike Veseth’s Wine Economist. There’s nothing else quite like it—a blend of economic insight … and often irreverent winespeak.”
Economist Mike Veseth is editor of The Wine Economist blog and author of more than a dozen books including best-selling Wine Wars (2011), Extreme Wine (2013) and Money, Taste & Wine: It’s Complicated! (2015).
The Wine Economist was named 2015 “Best in the World” best wine blog by Gourmand International.
Mike speaks frequently at national and international wine conferences. In 2013-2014, for example, Mike discussed global market conditions at the “State of the Industry” session at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento and addressed industry groups in the UK, Australia, Portugal, South Africa, Napa Valley, Oregon, Italy and Argentina.
