Tomorrow Wine is a call for student projects in wine trade and marketing, organized by Vinventions. For the fifth edition of the competition, dozens of applications were received and evaluated on Thursday, January 19 in Rivesalt by wine professionals, at the headquarters of the cork manufacturer.
“In general, students present mature and well-equipped projects. A good project will combine innovation with feasibility research,” analyzes Charles Lampoli, Director of Marketing and Communications at Vignerons Associés et Monts de Bourgogne and member of the jury.
