Investing in Wine (and Wine Tasting Too!) with Kevin Sidders (KSM '92), CEO of VinConnect

Speaker Series hosted by KFN - Thursday, November 21, 2019

***All are welcome***

Investing in wines is like investing in a start up - you need 10 years of runway to see significant returns. But unlike startups, wine is becoming ever more lucrative. KSM graduate Kevin Sidders, a former 20-year Silicon Valley investor, started VinConnect in 2012 to connect US consumers directly with wineries in Europe. He'll share his perspective on why wine, with its low volatility and long record, can be a great way to diversify.

Then we'll taste a sampler of wines from several regions in Europe that are great for the holidays - festive, flexible to pair with holiday foods, and perfect to bring as gifts. What a great way to celebrate the start of the holiday season in New York with your Kellogg and Northwestern friends.

Appreciation and thanks to host Gerry McGinley (KSM '92), Managing Director, UBS,
