Yesterday I attended the New York leg of Vinitaly’s U.S. tour, held at the New York Public Library at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. The event, held in the library’s elegant Celeste Bartos Forum, featured the wines of over 30 different producers, importers and distributors from all over Italy. The tour stopped in Miami, Palm Beach and Russia earlier this year before the traditional event in Verona last April. Vinitaly returned to the U.S. this fall, where in addition to New York, events were also held in Chicago and Washington, D.C. The tour’s next stop is Asia, with dates planned for Beijing, Shanghai and Macao, before heading to Brazil for the first time in 2009.
