 27th edition of
the GALA ITALIA

 

Ciao Amico! “Made in Italy” Triumphs in New York

 Ciao Amico means Hello Friend in Italian.  Recently, many of us experience the many unique sights, sounds and flavors of authentic Italy right hear in New York City! 

 Yes, the 27th edition of the GALA ITALIA proved to be a huge great success! It was much fun, so well attended, and there was …so much wine! The event took place on Thursday, February 23rd at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Manhattan under the high patronage of the Italian Ambassador to Washington, Claudio Bisogniero.

 This event was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all things Italian.  Great food, fine wines, lively music, and, of course art!  This celebration of Made in Italy, GALA ITALIA was really more than just a celebration – it was an extravaganza! 

 Importers, producers and journalists from across the Atlantic Coast crowded the Broadway Ballroom on the sixth floor of the Marriott and were joined by some very distinguished VIP guests: Consul General to New York, Minister Natalia Quintavalle and the Deputy Vice Consul Dino Sorrentino, a group of qualified consumers affiliated with the noted restaurants SD26 of Tony May, and Circo of Sirio Maccioni.

 The GALA ITALIA opened with wine and food tasting that included some of the finest Italian wines from the major wineries, including: Antinori, Arcanum, Baglio di Pianetto, Bertani, Biondi Santi, Cantine di Dolianova, Casale Falchini, Casale del Giglio, Castello d’Albola, Castello del Poggio, Castello di Gabbiano, Castello di Querceto, Cavit, Col d’Orcia, Domodimonti, Feudo Arancio, Feudo Principi di Butera, Fonterutoli, Francoli, Marco Maci, Mezzacorona, Moretti Omero, Nicola Campagnola, Pepe Stefania, Piera Martellozzo, Planeta, Rocca dei Sanniti, Rocca delle Macie, Rocca di Montemassi, Rotari, Ruffino, Santa Maria Valverde, Sella & Mosca, Stemmari, Tenuta ca’ Bolani, Tenute Folonari, Villa a Sesta, Villa Fiorita and Zonin.  Quite a list!

    Dr. Lucio Caputo, president of the Italian Wine and Food Institute and the one who oversaw the organization of the festivities in New York
 had this to say:

The 27th edition of the GALA ITALIA proved to be an event of the highest level.  The series of Galas are of notable prestige as they contribute greatly to the Made in Italy in the USA, reflecting their traditional and major commercial significance.

If you missed the GALA in New York, next up will be the Los Angeles Wine Gala on February 27th to further promote Made in Italy to the markets of California and the West Coast.  The venue will be the famous Valentino Restaurant of Piero Selvaggio.  Of course there will be by many A-List personalities in attendance - like the Consul General, Minister Giuseppe Perrone.

 

A side note: The GALA ITALIA distributed more than 2,000 copies of its colorful catalogue to guests, participants and representatives. And, this year, registration of guests was conducted entirely on-line, assuring a more manageable and

improved selection of attendance.

 

So, mark your calendar right now: The next edition of the GALA ITALIA in New York  will take place on February 21, 2013 with a new and more spectacular format that will continue to support Made in Italy in the USA.

 This year’s GALA ITALIA was jointly organized by the Italian Wine & Food Institute under the high patronage of the Italian Ambassador to Washington and received the sponsorship of ITALY (the company for the promotion abroad) and of the Ministry of
 Economic Development.

 Wishing you all the very best –
‘till we meet again – Arrivederci!
