After spending much of the year traveling to cities throughout China, Japan, South Korea, India, Singapore, and Russia, Vinitaly’s world tour is preparing to land in the US for its whirlwind tour of both Washington, DC (Mon., October 17) and New York City ( Wed. October 19). Both cities will host a slew of events geared to the media and trade that include a Grand Tasting, guided tastings, wine business seminar and a Sommelier Class.
Though the final schedules are still not released, there are definitely components of these “Tour Stops” that cannot be missed! One of the events to note, Brand Action Team’s own Steve Raye will sit in on a panel at the New York business seminar speaking to Social Media’s impact on online wine conversation. Other speakers are Snooth Editor-in-Chief Greg Dal Piaz, Wine Enthusiast Tasting Director and Senior Editor Joe Czerwinski and Italian Wine Director at Glazers Alfonso Cevola; it will be moderated by Stevie Kim of Veronafiere/Vinitaly.
If you’re a member of the beverage alcohol media or trade industry, Vinitaly’s US Tour is not to be passed by. You can learn more information and register for each of the events by visiting the two links included below. Other questions can be directed to info @ vinitalytour dot com.
Keep your eyes peeled for Steve in New York! Cheers!
