REACHING OUT TO THE NEXT GENERATION
In The Spotlight
This month sees the launch of Victoria Cece’s new Podcast series “The Next Generation”. This lifestyle/grape centric podcast, with a particular focus on young Italian wine people, goes live on Insta Live this month and then will be replayed on the Italian Wine Podcast Instagram in December.
wine2wine BUSINESS FORUM – PODCAST CORNER
November also means wine2wine Business Forum, Verona’s annual wine business forum. This year the focus of the Forum was on wine communication and the Italian Wine Podcast was on hand to welcome hundreds of wine professionals from all over the world. We even set up our own Podcast Corner, where our regular podcast hosts, Polly Hammond, Steve Raye and Cynthia Chaplin, where joined by Chris Scott from the UK Wine Show, the UK’s first and longest-running wine podcast. Look out for episodes from the Forum going live now.
GITA SCOLASTICA IN SICILY
As mentioned last month, several Gita Scolastica (or field trips if you prefer) are organised each year by the Vinitaly International Academy (VIA) as part of its ongoing commitment to promoting and educating about Italian wine. Listen in as Cynthia Chaplin narrates her travel adventures from the Vinitaly International Academy, 2022, Taormina Gourmet and Mt. Etna Gita Scolastica series.
