Between Terroir and Territory

Wine, Food, and Borders

For the Series >

Tuesday | 18.08.20 | 19:00

Roundtable |

In recent years the distinction between the food and wine industries on both sides of the Green Line is being erased. How does food reflect the tension between terroir as a quality space and territory as a political space? How does the BDS movement affect the wine industry? The final session will conclude with an open discussion of terroir between gastro-politics and gastro-diplomacy.
