VINITALY INTERNATIONAL is the strategic arm of VinItaly, the annual wine trade fair held in late April in Verona. Vinitaly International acts as a bridge between Italy produces and the rest of the world via both traditional formats such as trade fairs, B2B programs like Wine2Wine, off-site showcases and grand tastings and less traditoinal ones such as the VinItaly International Academy or VIA which is an educational initiative, and the Italian Wine Podcast, an educational, informative and (only very) occasionally entertaining podcast hosted by Monty Waldin.
