In the morning, there will be a session of BtoB meetings between Piedmontese producers and a group of importers and dealers of the Midwest area, scheduled in advance.

Refined, rich, elegant, Chicago is a city capable of intercepting, as few others, the qualitative and exclusive essence of the Piedmontese wines, also thanks to one of the most interesting Italian food scene of the United States of America.
