This year, the Italian wine promotion organisation will roll out #B2BHongKong meetings – a brand new initiative of Vinitaly International aimed at supporting Italian wine companies in their effort to grow their business in the Asian market – organised in collaboration with HKTDC.

Pitching up at the International Wine & Spirits Fair for the eighth consecutive year, the 1,000 square metre Italian Pavilion will showcase wines made from more than 590 native grapes across the country.

Education will be another focus of this year’s Vinitaly Hong Kong agenda. Ian D’Agata, scientific director of the Vinitaly International Academy (VIA), will hold three VIA Executive Wine Seminars, as well as an additional session dedicated to wines selected for the new wine guide, titled 5StarWines.

Jean Charles Viens, Hong Kong-based wine expert and educator, will be holding nine masterclasses during the wine fair.
