Michele… You are one of the best when it comes to planning / promoting programs; I’ve been around the block, I know. I do hope to participate in your future programs. I hold you in the highest regard. Ross Bouchard – US Wine Agent – Speedtasting Piemonte 2012
The tasting are always enjoyable to say the least. In all of my experiences with you in the past the planning and execution of the entire event is without a hitch. The wineries present are always of good quality with marketable wines in both value and what’s in the bottle. I have learned so much about the Italian wine industry in the past year and a half that I feel over the next year my portfolio will be tilted in that direction as I change my focus away from South American wines. Eclectic Cellars - Florida USA – Speedtasting Piemonte 2013
For a small importer like me with limited resources it means I can meet a lot of growers in one place and from one region I am interested in. The quality of wines on show especially on this last trip has been excellent. Also as someone who speaks no Italian I have translators on hand to explain the finer details. It is also a very good forum in which to exchange ideas with other importers from other countries and gets you outside of your comfort zone a little. ( a swimming pool always helps too!) Oeno UK – Speedtasting Piemonte 2013
interested in participating in a future SPEEDTASTING event, all of them! This was the second we participated in and those experiences brought us more labels in our portfolio. We like the concept and we trust Michele for the choice of regions and producers. Heritage Wines Hong Kong – Speedtasting Piemonte 2013
SPEEDTASTING: Better market overview, better understanding of culture and residents. Kessler Konsulting Germania – Speedtasting Piemonte 2013
I find it essential if I am going to start a relationship with a winery that I must meet the principals and their winery so I have a good understanding of the wines and style that I can take back with me and tell my sales people and clients. Great concept and organized events . Works very well for me. Groupe Soleil Canada – Speedtasting Piemonte 2013
the Speedtasting format is a very efficient and practical way to meet a good number of producers and have the opportunity to learn about their property and wines I really enjoy seeing parts of Italy that would not normally be visited, the dinners are very enjoyable, and great to meet other importers and learn about their markets. ex-Cellars Wine Services Canada – Speedtasting Consorzi Veneti 2013
new discoveries, useful contacts, experience. KAZUMIAN Russia – Speedtasting Consorzi Veneti 2013
I have found Speedtasting to be very productive in discovering new wineries that we have ended up adding to our portfolio: it is also a pleasure to meet and interact with newly discovered colleagues in the wine business , and to enjoy the hospitality provided be the hosts at these events.
