top runners and top winemakers: wine and verticality

What do elite international trail runners like ANTON KRUPICKA, CLARE GALLAGHER and SALLY MCRAE have in common with the winemakers of the Cinque Terre?

Certainly vertical challenges.  Different points of view on the landscape in an itinerant conversation between top runners and top winemakers. Local DOC wine will stimulate ideas and dialogues.
