The largest food and wine fair in the U.S. devoted exclusively to Italian wines and food products, producers, and gastronomic traditions.
Now in its fifth year, Taste of Italy Houston™ is the largest food and wine fair in the U.S. devoted exclusively to Italian wines and food products, producers, and gastronomic traditions.
More than 550 people attended last year’s fair (the largest to date), including more than 150 exhibitors.
Past guest speakers have included celebrity sommelier Brian Larky (owner/founder of Dalla Terra Imports), David Lynch (author of Vino Italiano), Master Sommelier Guy Stout (Italian Wine Specialist for Southern-Glazer’s), Las Vegas-based sommelier Elise Vandeberg (Vinitaly International Ambassador), Melvin Maddux (Gourmet Foods International), James Breuhl (Vice President of Perishables at Rouses Supermarket), Jeremy Parzen (Italian wine and food historian and journalist), and J.C. Reid (food columnist for the Houston Chronicle).
“The local, regional, and national response to the event last year was spectacular,” said Chamber Director Alessia Paolicchi. “Thanks to our outreach to media and to the Texas food and wine community, we were able to promote the many wonderful seminars we’ll be hosting this year. The response from the Texas restaurant and trade community has been extremely rewarding.”
