The Wine Hunter Exclusive Tasting is presented by #TrueItalianTaste, an Italian government campaign aimed “to inform consumers and foreign food operators about certified Italian products, the unique features of which cannot be reproduced except in their territories of origin, so counteracting the phenomenon of ‘Italian sounding’ products and striving to strengthen the presence of authentic Italian agrofood in foreign markets.”
As Houston continues to grow and make its mark as one of the top destinations for fine wine in the U.S., more and more leading Italian winemakers are coming here to introduce their wines to an expanding field of wine lovers and wine trade professionals, including some of the top sommeliers in the country.
On June 5, the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Texas will be hosting an exclusive tasting of iconic Italian wines at the Omni Riverway, one of city’s most luxurious hotels and resorts.
Trade members and media are encouraged to attend: Some of these wines have never been shown in Houston before.
WHEN: Monday, June 5
TIME: 12-5 p.m.
WHERE: Omni Riverway (Colonnade Room)
Wineries will include: Vigna Roda (Veneto), Mirabella Franciacorta (Lombardia), Cantina di Venosa (Basilicata), Perla del Garda (Lombardia), Tenuta Biodinamica Mara (Emilia-Romagna), Zorzettig (Friuli-Venezia Giulia), Alberto Longo (Puglia), Felline (Puglia), and Feudo di Romans (Friuli).
All of the wines selected for this event are top scorers (88 points and above) and each has been tasted and reviewed by “the WineHunter” tasting panel.
In the words of the organizers, “The WineHunter is a guarantee and a benchmark for the highest quality! The WineHunter philosophy and creed is wine is the poetry of the earth!”
