|Flashback: Vinitaly 14 - ICE president Luigi Deserti |
welcomes Burton Anderson, John Mariani and Lou Iacucci
I’ll be there this year again, with a load of customers and colleagues and friends and a few surprises along the way. Bear with us, internet connections aren’t always so easy to get.
If you haven’t read it yet and you are coming to Vinitaly this year, print yourself a copy of this post:
First-Timer's Guide to finding the best bathrooms at Vinitaly along with a copy of the map I modified to show you where the best rest stops are – this post has generated massive traffic and it’s my way of honoring George Costanza, who had a fixation on the WC’s of NYC.
Vinography wine blog. Bring wine -(we have to have something to blog about, don’t we?)- I'm especially fond of Bellavista...
What else? For perspective let’s look at this:
Last year Vinitaly 46 hosted 156,000 people, and was considered a grand success.
Chengdu, the wine fair hosted 260,000 people and generated over US $3.3 billion in sales in three days. I think I need to find a way to go to that fair next year before Vinitaly 48.
Anyone need some American bloggers in China next year? I know a couple who’d love to cover it (hint, hint).
Alright, it’s late, gotta grab some sleep – See y’all in Italy? Save some Col Fondo Prosecco for me, guys...
