The beginning of December was extremely exciting for Viticcio. We were honoured and pleased to take part in Great Wines of Italy Asia organized by James Suckling. With stops in three major Asian cities – Beijing, Hong Kong and Bangkok –, we had to opportunity to connect with distributors, sommeliers, restauranteurs, producers and consumers who love Italian wine across the Asian continent.
Viticcio was exclusively invited, along with 80 other important wineries from Italy, to showcase our wines at the event. Our range of Chianti Classico, which have garnered continuous top recognition within the wine world and high ratings from the American media, were a big hit.
We met so many people, greatly expanding Viticcio’s network of similarly impassioned lovers of the outstanding wines of Tuscany. Pairing our award-wining Chianti Classico with various Asian dishes was an interesting new way to think about and perceive our wines. The growth of Italian wines in the Asian market is a wonderful opportunity for Viticcio to spread and share the beauty and the uniqueness of the Chianti Classico region. Each bottle is a taste of our territory and we continue to marvel at how incredible it is that wine lovers can enjoy this distinct land across the world.
A warm thank you to James Suckling for inviting us to participate in this outstanding event.
