There’s Always Something Happening at ALBA!

Family Business Tradition and Innovation

The ALBA Hub for Enterprise and Development organized the first event of the new series titled “Family Business Tradition and Innovation” on December 16, 2015. This new initiative aims to showcase how family businesses can build on their tradition in order to ensure longevity.

With each event drawing input from a specific sector, the series kicked off with the Greek winemaking industry. Dina Spiropoulou from Domaine Spiropoulos in Mantinia, Stellios Boutaris from the Kir-Yianni Estate in Naoussa, and Antonis Dourakis from the Dourakis winery in Crete, shared their experience, insight, and advice with a mixed audience of family business owners, wine makers, students, and journalists.

The discussion was facilitated by Vice President of the International Federation of Wine and Spirit Journalists and Writers, wine journalist and blogger, Theodoros Lelekas.
