Wine on the Web

“The Wine Educational Board (W.E.B.) stems from the need of giving relevance to the culture and value of Italy’s greatest wines in Italy and abroad. However, this means not just the already well known and much talked and written about Barolo or Brunello, but also those many other great wines made with little known cultivars or in less famous production areas I think characterize Italy in a way few other things do. So we will talk and write about the likes of Grignolino, Malvasia di Schierano, Freisa, but also Barbera d’Asti and Moscato d’Asti, as well as Nero d’Avola, Pecorino, Vernaccia di Oristano, Picolit, Corvina and many more as well as little known territories such as the salluzzese, albugnano, caluso and more still. All of this will come to be thanks to an activity of capillary divulgation, knowledge, promotion that will be implemented through an annual schedule of events, educational videos, tastings with the purpose of creating an outright Wine Club, a platform of cultural dialogue amongst professionals, wine writers, producers, consortia, sharing the idea education and knowledge of great wine tradition to be the key factor of the success on the market. All this thanks to a panel of international wine experts that have the competence and the credibility to speak to Italian and international wine lovers alike. Our W.E.B. Experts panel is made up of world famous experts i have personally invited onto the board such as Steven Spurrier, Decanter’s Senior Editor, that honored us of his participation to the project, Bernard Burtschy, Chief Editor of Figaro Vin, professionals as Laura DePasquale, importer and vice-president of the Court of Master Sommeliers, the higher sommelier recognition in the US, but as well promising young people of the wine world: Lingzi He, young Chinese wine-writer and Chief Education Officer for an extremely important new wine school in Shangai, and Michaela Morris, wine consultant for the British Columbia monopoly in Canada for Italian wines.

At the very same time, THE W.E.B. aims at being a website open to young people and wine lovers opening up to the wine world for the first time, people to whom we have the responsibility to inform and to form. It will be a modern, multimedia, daily platform from where and by which to learn and interact, to grow and have fun.”
