Zonin: Italian bubbles at “The Best of Italy Gala Night.”

The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the commitment of “Zonin 1821” as a Gold Sponsor at “The Best of Italy Gala Night”.

With its close ties to the land for the past seven generations, the Zonin family heads the largest private vine growing and winemaking company in Italy.

Domenico Zonin, CEO of ZONIN 1821, since 2014, took over from his father Gianni Zonin, who has run the Company since 1967 for forty years, transforming it from a local dimension to being one of Italy’s most important wine producers and an established, well- known brand all over the world.

The heart of the company is located in Gambellara, in the province of Vicenza, an oasis of lush green hills, meticulously arranged vineyards, and also the ancestral home of the Zonin family.

The wooden wine press, located at the entrance hall of the Zonin’s headquarters in Gambellara, dates back to the beginning of the 19th century. In fact, the construction of wine presses, the way they work, and the system they use for pressing the grapes have essentially remained unchanged since early Roman times.

Zonin will bring their admirable excellence to “The Best of Italy Gala Night” as they will be the providers of Prosecco during the cocktail reception that will take place inside the Historic Alfred Dupont Building in the North Ballroom from 6 to 8pm.

“The Extraordinary Italian Taste” at FANS in Tampa

As part of  The Extraordinary Italian Taste  consumers’ awareness campaign, launched by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Economic Development in North America with the objective of promoting and enhancing Italian products through the diffusion of a greater knowledge on their specific characteristics and their authenticity, with reference both to their places of origin and their nutritional aspects, the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce, Southeast participated in the 81st Florida Food and Nutrition Educational Symposium and Exhibition (FL FANS) that took place in Tampa, on July 25 and 26, 2016.

Organized by the Florida Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the state’s largest organization of nutrition professionals (more than 3,000 members), the Symposium saw the attendance of 600 + of its members to obtain continuing education credit and visit the exhibits to learn about new products and services.

Highlighting the traceability, quality control, and certifications of Italian products, The Extraordinary Italian Taste aims at educating American consumers on how to identify a genuine product in order to make informed purchases and enjoy the best quality goods.

Not only was the Italy- America Chamber of Commerce, Southeast one of the exhibitors of the symposium, representing The Extraordinary Italian Taste campaign with a booth on its own, but it also organized an educational class on  the benefits of the Mediterranean Diet and the connection between the territory and the quality of the products. The class, with an attendance of nearly 70 nutrition professionals, promoted the Mediterranean Diet as a genuine and a nourishing diet that contributes to leading a healthy lifestyle and overall physical wellbeing, as well as educated an audience of professional nutritionist and dieticians on the authenticity of Italian food products.

Italy is the European country with the largest number of DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) and IGP (Protected Geographical Indication) food products recognized by the European Union: a proof of the excellent quality of the Italian products, and above all, of their strong bond to their territory of origin.

food heritage unique in the world for breadth, variety and quality excellence that claims:

  • 275DOP (Protected Designation of Origin), IGP (Protected Geographical Indication), STG (Traditional Specialty Guaranteed) products;
  • 523DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin), DOC (Controlled Designation of Origin), IGT (Indication of Geographic Distinctiveness) products.

Regrettably, every year about 54 billion Euros ($58.8 billion) are spent by consumers around the world to buy products with images and brands that evoke Italy, but are not actually related to the authentic Made in Italy production, a figure that is more than twice as much as the export value of the real Italian food products. If we focus on the North America market, only one  product out of ten is an authentic Made in Italy, and the estimated damage caused to Italian companies by the so-called Italian Sounding phenomenon reaches 27 billion Euros ($29 billion).

The Extraordinary Italian Taste” brand and the North America consumers’ awareness campaign were  launched with the specific objective of  putting a stop or at least stemming  the spread of Italian food products imitations, as well as promoting the authentic Made in Italy under one brand.

The Italy- America Chamber of Commerce’s participation at the symposium representing The Extraordinary Italian Taste campaign was undoubtedly a success. The project excited curiosity,  interest and approval among the numerous exhibit booth visitors and educational class attendees, receiving accolades from many of the nutrition professionals present.
