Vinitaly 2024 is coming.

There is just over a month left until the 56th edition, Vinitaly and the Veronafiere machine is moving at full speed, and it’s not just a figure of speech.

In fact, in these days Federico Bricolo, President, Maurizio Danese, CEO and Raul Barbieri, Commercial Director, are in Houston and New York for the last American stages of the Vinitaly Roadshow.

The last official event leading up to the Verona fair will be the Vinitaly Preview aimed at buyers and opinion leaders which will be held in Brussels on 19 March.

This will bring to an end the intense program of preparation and launch of Vinitaly 2024, which began last September and which brought Veronafiere and Italian wineries to the four corners of the globe.
