In Italy, we have a proverb: never change a formula that works. Vinitaly’s original formula—a combination professional exhibition and popular festival—has always worked, for 46 years … until now.
Founded 45 years ago, Vinitaly is an international exhibition of wines and spirits—and olive oil. A couple days are open to the public, while several days are reserved for professionals such as buyers, distributors and winemakers.
Billed as the largest Italian wine conference outside of Italy, VINO2010, held February 2–5 in New York City, drew hundreds of people in the wine and food sector from across the US for tastings, food samplings, and events.
