Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) Seestraße 13 80802 München

Scandals evolving around wine usually prompt newspaper headlines insinuating the old latin phrase and questioning the truthfulness of wine products.

But what about their Europeanness? How much “Europe” can be found in wines from the “old continent”? What relevance do European frameworks have for the production, distribution and consumption of wine? What does the regionality of a product have to do with quality and European hegemony?

Speaker: Dr. Lisbeth Matzer (CAS Researcher in Residence/History, LMU)

Respondent: Prof. Claudia Steinwender, Ph.D. (Economics, LMU)

A registration is required for participation. Further information can be found on the CAS website.
