Vinitaly Roadshow – New York
January 24 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Vinitaly Roadshow, New York City: With the International Exhibition of Wines and Spirits’ 55th edition just around the corner, Veronafiere and Vinitaly are pleased to announce the Vinitaly Roadshow in New York City, in collaboration with ITA – the Italian Trade Agency – and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
Both Veronafiere and Vinitaly International see this event as a natural fit for the “Italy is simply extraordinary: Be IT” campaign.
Building on the excitement for Vinitaly’s full return in April 2023, this Roadshow will extend an exciting preview of this upcoming Spring with New York’s Italian wine community. It will take place at Contento NYC, Italian Wine Ambassador and top sommelier Yannick Benjamin’s debut restaurant making waves with its wine list and heartfelt mission to make wine accessible to everyone, especially those with disabilities. Hosted in such a groundbreaking new space, the Roadshow will attract wine professionals across the NY metro area for an afternoon tasting of Italian wines from all 20 wine regions, light lunch, and a meet and greet with USA-based VIA Italian Wine Ambassadors.
Institutional representatives from Veronafiere, ITA, and Managing Director of Vinitaly International Stevie Kim will be readily at hand, serving as key brand ambassadors who will share the various opportunities to attend Vinitaly 2023. More specifically, they will lead a presentation on the Vinitaly 2023 “Marathon” (which includes Vinitaly, Vinitaly International Academy, 5StarWines, and OperaWine). This presentation will also share how to qualify for the Buyers’ Program, an exclusive opportunity for selected wine trade operators to meet and engage with the best Italian wine producers.
