Robbin Gheesling tells her experience at VINO 2017 in her blog Vineyard adventures:

Alfonso Cevola is an old friend of the Italian Trade Commission and of the Vino event. He has been speaker in some seminars in the past editions: “I think the fact that the event was short made it sweet. It was concise, quick and to the point, kind of like NY.

Lots of available glassware and people there to perform the food and beverage service. Two thumbs up.”
