NEW YORK CITY, N.Y., Sept. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- After the resounding success of its 2023 return, the International Volcanic Wines Conference (IVWC) is thrilled to announce its fourth edition, set to take place in the heart of New York City on June 18, 2024.
This eagerly anticipated event, created and hosted by Volcanic Wines International, in partnership with renowned Master Sommelier and award-winning author John Szabo, promises to be an even more spectacular showcase of volcanic wines from around the world with a strong educational component.
The third edition In 2023 featured a sold-out schedule of masterclasses and a richly diverse grand tasting, with 46 producers showcasing 152 exceptional wines from 18 distinct volcanic regions, making the event the single largest exhibition of volcanic wines in the world. Over 300 members of the press and trade attended, reflecting the increasing interest and demand for authentic wines from these unique volcanic terroirs.
Volcanic Wines International remains committed to educating the trade about the distinctive geological conditions and natural forces that shape volcanic vineyards, and highlighting the individuality of the wines that arise from each. As consumers and industry professionals alike continue to seek wines with singular character and compelling backstories, the volcanic wines category championed by the IVWC is a near-endless source of new discoveries.
With the fourth edition on the horizon, Colangelo & Partners, in collaboration with John Szabo MS, intend to continue their mission to educate the wine trade public about volcanic wines, from the smallest technical details to the broadest flavor profiles. The IVWC plans to expand the universe of volcanic wines in 2024 by welcoming an even greater range of countries, regions and wineries into the volcanic wine movement, while remaining true to the original mission and definition of volcanic wines as set out by John Szabo in his category-defining book, Volcanic Wines: Salt Grit and Power.
