Vancouver, I’m on my way!

As you read this, I’ll be soaring in the sky, in the best way possible! En route to Vancouver, one of the friendliest cities I’ve ever visited, where people are warm and bike lanes are wider than car lanes.

Vancouver hosts the Vancouver International Wine Festival, one of the most significant wine showcases in North America. This year, Italy takes the spotlight, and I’ll be the guide, leading industry experts and enthusiasts on a journey through Italian wines. It’s going to be 7 days of stories, meetings and collaborations and I can’t wait to share the beauty of my country with Canadian and American friends, as well as thousands of visitors from around the globe.

One might think that the most challenging part would be narrating the story of Italian wine, but in reality, no, I feel confident in that, thanks to my tasting notes and my nose. The real challenge, for me, is packing. I often find myself tossing in energy bars and hiking shoes instead of socks… the amazing life of a wine traveler! Stay tuned 🙂
