IMG_8379Love Italian wines? If so, its time to celebrate Italian Wine Week! Starting February 1st until the 5th you can enjoy one of the grandest wine events held outside Italy. Held this year at the Waldorf Astoria, you will have access to the seminars, tastings, and discussions. You will be able to meet and greet with many more wine professionals and taste wines available for the first time in the US market; that makes a great party story right? I know I love trying wines just released into the market, as it’s a special experience that not many get to do unless they’re “in the know” or attend a tasting like this of course!

Thanks to the Italian Trade Commission and the partnership with fantastic hotels and wineries, the success of the previous VINO 2009-2011 events brought this wonderful week of wine back to NYC this 2015. There will be over 15 seminar sessions, press conferences, and panel discussions with industry leaders and opinion makers in the wine industry.

Interested? You will also be able to explore relevant topics pertinent to Italian Wine sales in the US, exports and trends, which will be discussed during the robust seminar program. Lastly, over the course of the week a specific focus will be on four regions of the South: Puglia, Calabria, Sicily and Campania, which in my opinion are four great regions you absolutely can not miss!
