Create a your own slice of Italy tonight

Americans have been having a love affair with ‘Cucina Italiano’ for years. Right alongside our love of Italian food is our passion for Italian wines

It’s Vinitaly Time Again! 

Ah, one of my favorite times of the year has arrived. I’m not talking about the start of baseball season, however I am looking forward to seeing my beloved Red Sox make another run at a World Series title. No, I’m talking about what happens in the wine world this time of year. This is the season for many of the world’s biggest and most influential wine trade shows.

Prowein (Dusseldorf, Germany) and Vinitaly (Verona, Italy) both take place in the next couple of weeks and I’m delighted that ABCFWS has once again asked me to attend Vinitaly in search of more great Italian wine.

Vinitaly is regarded as one of the preeminent trade shows in the wine world. This year over 150,000 visitors are expected to turn out.  Attendees include distributors, wholesalers, importers, bars, restaurants, sommeliers, the trade press and serious retailers like ABCFWS. It will be four days of non-stop meetings, tastings, workshops and events designed to encourage contacts between exhibitors and those of us in the trade. For anyone who thinks I’m going on vacation I would love to invite you along for just one day.
