WineHunter USA Tour Houston / New Orleans

6th Edition
3-5 June 2019

In the United States the interest in Italian excellences is an ever-growing phenomenon. It is synonym to an increasing attention to high-quality wines and products that are not only able to describe Italy, its history and traditions, but also, to match and to enhance numerous dishes and flavors from all over the world.

The desire to create an atmosphere of dialogue and the discovery of new products has inspired Helmuth Köcher, founder of the Merano WineFestival and cofounder of the WineHunter Society in America. That is why the WineHunter USA tour presents some of the best Italian producers to a professional American audience. Producers introduce their wines rich in history and emotions, and their culinary excellences to importers, distributers, industry professionals, and to a selected audience.
