Vinitaly International Academy returns to the USA ...but which city? We need your feedback!

Ciao ragazzi! 

We are thinking about the possibility of bringing Vinitaly International Academy to 4 cities in the U.S.:

  1. Dallas or Houston
  2. Seattle or Portland
  3. Detroit or Chicago
  4. Atlanta or Nashville

Whomever responds to this survey by giving us feedback on which you think will be the best city options (1-4), telling us why you believe this to be the best choice and has a U.S. mailing address, we will send you a FREE copy of the book: Italian Wine Unplugged.

You can find out more about Vinitaly International Academy on our website:

To date, we have had 2 successful Vinitaly International Academy editions in New York, 1 in Los Angeles & 1 in San Francisco. 

We look forward to hearing your feedback!

  • Ciao Ms. Kim,

    1. Houston. Yes, Dallas has TexSomm, but since they're getting that annual wine love, why not shine the spotlight on another city?

    2. Portland. This one is a tough call, but i'd say PDX which is a great food city with vibrant scene, and lots of professionals working in wine/spirits. Also, Seattle is just three hours by train, so easily accessible for the folks there.

    3. Chicago. Yes, Detroit is still "up and coming", but Chicago is well established with a respected F&B scene employing your target audience.

    4. Atlanta, because it's a major airline hub, accessible for all the folks in the south (FL, Carolinas, etc.). I do keep hearing that Nashville is buzzing right now, but ATL may have the edge.

  • Hi Ms. Franky,

    Thank you very much for your feedback! As promised, we will be purchasing for you a copy of the book Italian Wine Unplugged through Amazon. Please send us your email, phone number, full name and mailing address to: so that we may ship you this complimentary book.

    Thanks again!

  • Very much appreciated Stevie Kim, thank you so much!
