To promote the continued growth and development of Italian fine wine in the U.S. on-premise sector, VeronaFiere is pleased to offer the Taub Family Vinitaly Italian Wine Scholarship. Now in its third year, this annual scholarship provides applicants the opportunity to be awarded an all-expenses-paid professional, educational trip to the 47th annual Vinitaly trade show in Verona, Italy from April 7-10, 2013. Eligible candidates working with wine in the on-premise sector are invited to submit applications from now through January 15, 2013 at http://www.italianwinescholarship.com.
The Taub family founded Palm Bay International in 1977, and over the past 35 years and three generations has built the company into one of the leading wine and spirits importers in the United States. Father and son team Martin and David Taub launched Palm Bay with just two Italian brands, and quickly forged a reputation as pioneers and advocates in the expansion of the world of Italian wine. In particular, David’s vision and drive developed the path for Pinot Grigio to become the number one Italian wine in America. Today, David’s son Marc D. Taub stands at the helm of this quintessential family business, and carries on his family’s legacy together with Palm Bay’s 200+ employees. The Taub family is pleased to lend their name to this important scholarship that VeronaFiere organizes.
In order to be considered for this scholarship, applicants must be 21 years of age or older, currently actively employed in the on-premise sector within the U.S., and must have a direct connection to the wine program within their employer’s establishment. They must demonstrate that they have the potential to be a wine opinion leader and have an impact on their company’s wine program, customers and fellow employees.
