The Wine Tasting Season Ends, the Trip to Italy Begins

Hello and happy Fall to all! My apologies for the lack of posts; this Social Media Chef has had a very, very busy Autumn. I’ve spent the majority of the last month or so preparing and promoting several amazing wine tasting events for the restaurants I work for. Tasting booklets, promotional materials, email blasts, blog posts, Facebook events, the works. All ending with four final wine tasting events to send out the wine tasting season with a bang. They all had great turnouts and I got to meet some wine folks in the process. Here are links to some of the content from the events, in no particular order:

Wines and Cheeses of Italy
The closing event of Jersey Shore Restaurant Week. Huge crowd of 300+ tasters!

Meet & Greet Tasting with Isabella Oddero
A tasting and bottle signing with the lovely Isabella Oddero.

Accademia del Vino: The Wines of Renato Ratti
The final wine lecture in the 3rd season of the Accademia del Vino Wine Lecture Series at Undici.

An Evening with Joe Bastianich
A rare tasting of Bastianich and La Mozza wines with restaurateur and wine guru Joe Bastianich!

And as the wine season ends, I have just enough time to catch my breath before jumping on a plane to Italy!

After hours of editing travel footage and tasting dozens of wines from every region, I’m finally traveling to Italy. My travels will take me to Piemonte (specifically Alba) to collect some video, photos, and write articles during the trip. I can’t reveal the full details surrounding my work on the trip just yet, but expect some exciting news in the near future. It will only be a short 5 day venture, and I’ll be chronicling all my travels right here (of course), so keep an eye out for new posts coming soon!
