Must Read

Stevie has also been busy this month promoting the Italian Wine Podcast, speaking at a variety of important trade events, as interest in podcasting is now experiencing an unprecedented spike.

The first event was the Women in Food summit hosted by Corriere della Sera, Italy’s most read newspaper, where she gave her take on what it takes to run a successful podcast in the culinary field.

In a similar vein, Stevie spoke to an international audience of wine communicators at the Wine Media Conference, an annual event this year hosted on the banks of Lake Garda, on the effectiveness of wine podcasting.

Look out for the full story from these events coming soon on the Italian Wine Podcast.
