Vinitaly 2023 – the ISWA gala event at Villa Della Torre

04 April 2023

The Vinitaly week has always been a great opportunity to turn Verona into a crossroads for authorities, industry professionals, buyers and the press.

In this spirit of friendliness, a gala dinner by Italian Signature Wines Academy was held last Monday, April 3, in Fumane.

In the majestic setting of Villa Della Torre, Marilisa Allegrini, ISWA President, welcomed the numerous guests, thanking, among others, the Mayor of Verona Damiano Tommasi, the institutions attending, the most important buyers on the wine market worldwide, and the very young Chef of Milan’s Park Hyatt, Guido Paternollo – who delighted the guests with his extraordinary cuisine.

Starting with a welcome ‘aperitivo’, the guests tasted wines from ISWA companies: Allegrini, Bellavista, Arnaldo Caprai, Feudi di San Gregorio, Fontanafredda, Frescobaldi, Masciarelli, Planeta and Villa Sandi, during an all-around wine tour through the excellence of Italian wines.

Marilisa Allegrini told Telearena:

“(Villa della Torre) hosts once again our Italian and international friends and customers alongside all the ISWA companies – the group we set up a few years ago to convey the beauty of Italy, our products, our history and art. What you see is a great enthusiasm, a great euphoria, a lot of people, precisely because after the pandemic years, there is probably a desire for sociality and conviviality.”
