Taste of Italy, full circle!

T1With so much happening in the local Houston wine scene lately, this time Taste of Italy (@TasteofItalyTX) rocked the city full circle. With an assortment of hundreds of wines, there were so many rare finds, it was impossible to count them all!

With every region of Italy represented, the ballroom of the Hilton Houston Post Oak brimmed with passionate Italian wine suppliers energetically speaking in and out of their native tongue. They marketed their wines to potential business buyers, importers, distributors, and top restaurants, with high hopes of securing representation in the Houston market for their wines and specialty foods. Kudos to the Italy-American Chamber of Commerce for organizing a terrific event, showing a vested interest in helping Italian companies develop business opportunities.

A red grape variety called Lambrusco immediately caught my attention — those tasty red and pink effervesce bubbles proved quite intoxicating on the nose and the palate! Take a peek at all the other intoxicating moments by using #TasteofItalyHouston on Twitter and checking out my photos below!
