Italian Food, Wine & Travel

Back in late 2014 I established our Italian Food, Wine & Travel group that features monthly events hosting up to 30 food and wine writers from all around the world that share their love for Italian food, Italian wine and travel throughout all the regions of Italy..   Each month, on the 1st Saturday of the month, we feature a different theme selected by each individual host.  In the weeks leading up to the event we have a preview post to draw attention to our upcoming theme and the first Saturday of the month all of our articles are live on our sites and interconnected.  Each one of our writers showcases their individuality based on the theme and we chat live about it that Saturday on Twitter (#ItalianFWT) at 11am EST.  We encourage all winelovers, PR companies, importers, consorzio and wineries to participate.

Here is our 2020 calendar:

January: Introduce a Friend to Italian Wine hosted by Jeff Burrows
February: Cooperatives in Italy hosted by Kevin Gagnonn
