Attend WineSummit VIII in France. Subsidies available for Renaud Society members.
Wine Summit VII is WIneHealth2013
Twenty years after the term the 'French Paradox' was coined, scientific studies continue to explore the complex relationship between the consumption of wine and health. This relationship has been the focus of a long standing series of scientific meetings starting in Udine (Italy) in 1996 followed by the New York Academy of Science Meeting in 2001 in Palo Alto, California (USA), Santiago (Chile) in 2002, Stellenbosch (South Africa) in 2005, Bordeaux (France) in 2007 and Friuli (Italy) in 2010. You are now invited to Sydney, Australia from the 18th to the 20th of July 2013 for WineHealth 2013.
This Conference provides an opportunity to bring together world experts for a stimulating exchange of scientific information and ideas on the impacts of wine consumption on human health, and to explore the epidemiological evidence of the effect of wine as a unique alcoholic beverage.
The Conference also aims to provide deeper insight into the biological mechanisms involved in any beneficial effects of wine on health, and how specific molecules present in grapes and wine have biological activities that may be harnessed for health. Sociological outcomes of the use and abuse of wine, and hence public health priorities will also be presented for debate and discussion.
It is envisaged that these exchanges will contribute to the evidence base for public policy setting, provide direction for new research efforts into the health effects of wine, and offer opportunities for international collaborations.

The Historic Marcus Whitman Hotel
Walla Walla, Washington
In 1805 and 1806, Lewis and Clark blazed a trail through the Walla Walla region and were intrigued with what they experienced. Thirty years later, missionaries Marcus and Narcissa Whitman built a mission among the Cayuse Indians near Walla Walla. After 11 years of service, the Whitmans and several of those staying at the mission with them met an untimely death in November 1847. The name Whitman became widely used in the local area with everything from Whitman Street to Whitman College. It came as no surprise in 1927, when the people of Walla Walla decided to honor Marcus Whitman by naming their new hotel after him. The idea for a luxury hotel to attract travelers and conventions had been a topic of discussion since the early 1920s. In 1927, W.W. Baker, president of Baker Boyer National Bank, called together the city fathers and spearheaded the efforts of moving forward with the idea. More than 200 businessmen attended that first meeting in support of the idea of a first-class hotel. An investment company from Seattle, Real Estate Improvement Company, offered to put up $300,000 toward the building of the hotel if the community could raise $150,000 in 90 days. Walla Walla rose to the challenge with the city fathers selling $100 shares of stock in the hotel. Within just weeks, the required amount had been raised and Walla Walla was on its way to having a luxury hotel. Sherwood D. Ford of Seattle was selected as the architect for the hotel. The Construction began in September 1927. Amid much enthusiasm, the Marcus Whitman Hotel officially opened on September 1, 1928. W.W. Baker was first in line to sign the guest register. At the time the hotel opened, it was the most luxurious hotel for miles around. It was also the only hotel on record at that time that used the same system for heating and cooling the rooms. Through the years, "The Hotel" has hosted numerous dignitaries and celebrities, including President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Vice-President Lyndon B. Johnson, Louie Armstrong and Shirley Temple. By the 1970's, the hotel had begun to slide into disrepair. In 1999, Kyle Mussman formed Real Estate Improvement Company and bought the historic structure. Sharing a community vision with the City and Port of Walla Walla, they restored and expanded the grand old building to provide not only classic elegance and style, but also cutting-edge technology for today's conference needs
The winemakers and growers of the Walla Walla Valley are bound by a passion for what they do, a commitment to quality and sustainability, and a mutual respect for each other's unique visions.
Today more than 90 wineries are operating in the Valley, and more than 1,600 acres of vineyards have become part of the agricultural landscape. Whether new or established, the members of this community of winemakers and growers openly support each other. The result is a region with as much goodwill as individuality.
It is the Walla Walla wine industry’s unparalleled commitment to quality, sustainability, and camaraderie combined with the Valley’s unique terroir that has helped secure its place on the world’s wine map.
