Simply Italian Great Wines Americas Tour kicked off its annual trade tasting in Toronto, Canada, and returned to sunny Miami, to showcase the highly anticipated Italian wine selection. In these two countries there is a prospect of wide margins of growth in the fine wines sector. The I.E.M. trade-shows’ signature format – educational seminars, b2b meetings and walk-around tasting – is the strength of the tour, created to promote Italian fine wines and establish key relationships with the trade. The program featured a series of educational seminars and tastings presented by distinguished experts in their respective fields.
Simply Italian Great Wines Americas Tour also hosted the Enjoy European Quality Project, a 3-year promotion cosponsored by the European Community designed to increase the awareness and recognition of European quality products within the food and wine sector with sparkling wines promoted by the Consorzio di Tutela dell’Asti D.O.C.G., cured deli meat from the Istituto Valorizzazione Salumi Italiani and cheese from Consorzio Tutela Provolone Valpadana D.O.P. within various cities in the United States, featuring a VIP reception at the exclusive Soho Beach House from 8.00 pm to 10.00 pm, an evening to celebrate along with wine lovers and wine representatives.
