Patrick will be delivering a talk with the conference programme titled:

From Bark To Bottle, Cork Forest Eco-Tour

Cork and wine have had a singular relationship for over 2 centuries, but little is known about cork forests, their culture, gastronomy and forestry. This presentation will describe this," first of its kind", eco-tour, of Spain's cork forests that immerses each traveler in the wines, food, culture and forestry of these regions.
