Impact Napa: Wine conference

Analysis and discussion of labor in the wine industry

Labor trends in the wine industry will take center stage at Business Journal‘s sixth-annual Impact Napa conference. Impact Napa: Wine will feature an analysis of the industry’s labor situation by Dr. Robert Eyler, regional economist and director of the executive MBA program at Sonoma State University followed by a discussion among a panel of industry experts.

“One major concern in Napa is the availability of a labor force for agriculture, versus hospitality and restaurant employment,” Dr. Eyler said. ”Another is simply the importation of labor for all jobs to Napa, as there may be less and less an indigenous labor force in Napa for a lot of the jobs there.”

Sponsor: North Bay Business Journal; Bank of Marin; Dickenson, Peatman & Fogarty

Date: Aug. 29, 2013, 7:30–11 a.m.

Place: Napa Valley Marriott Hotel & Spa, Napa

Speakers: economist Robert Eyler, vineyard appraiser Tony Correia, Peter Mondavi Jr. of C. Mondavi & Family, Bill Harlan of Harlan Estate and Bruce Phillips of Vine Hill Ranch. Read about their observations in the Aug. 26 issue of the Business Journal.
