California wine industry leaders plan to meet with counterparts in the marijuana business in a bid to examine their similarities and opportunities for collaboration as the state rolls out its new adult-use cannabis market.

According to the North Bay Business Journal and a news release, the Wine Industry Network will host a one-day symposium on Aug. 3 in Santa Rosa featuring wine and cannabis industry experts who will discuss regulations, licensing requirements, hospitality, tourism, farming and other topics. 

The gathering comes amid discussion about how the two heavily regulated, farm-based industries will affect one another in a state with lots of tourists and limited water resources.


The symposium’s topics will include growing marijuana in vineyards, the cannabis- and wine-based hospitality industry and MJ-infused wine.
