On Tuesday 15th October Allora Solutions assisted in organising the Real Italian Tasting held at Church House, Deans Yard, Westminster SW1P 3NZ. We have previously used this venue, and have always had the highest regard for their organisational abilities. However, on this occcasion we were delighted to learn that others also value Church House as a home for promotional events, as they have recently been awarded Best In Britain for conference venues….
This year, once again, the event was larger and yet more successful. Highlights were the presence of Umbria with an enogastronomic display, and the two Masterclasses – Peter McCombie MW in the morning presented to 38 delegates The Eight Pillars of Campania, whilst in the afternoon Angela Mount led 42 tasters on a Magical Mystery Tour of Calabrian wines.

But these organisational features were topped by the arrival in the morning of the Italian Ambassador, His Excellency Pasquale Terracciano together with his wife. They were guided around the show by Manfredi Nulli, creator of The Real Italian Tasting, accompanied by Fortunato Celi Zullo, Director of ITA London, and both eminent guests spent an unusually generous amount of time and effort sampling both wines and foods with very obvious concentration and enjoyment.
