Wine Media Strategist at Colangelo&Partners, Wine Educator, Member of Les Dames d'Escoffier

Irene Graziotto

The many hats Irene Graziotto has worn in almost fifteen years in the wine field has allowed her to acquire a comprehensive overview of the business, along with a solid international network that spans across continents. From working as a wine writer for Italian and global publications to being a University educator, from mastering media relations on the US, Europe, and the UK markets to serving as a panelist and international wine judge, she brings wine communication to the next level. Before moving to NYC, where she now works for Colangelo & Partners, one of the US biggest PR agencies entirely dedicated to the food & beverage promotion, she has also lived in Europe, and the UK. At Colangelo & Partners she serves as the Media Relation Strategist overseeing the media communication across the agency's global portfolio, working with high-end clients from Australia to Argentina, from Italy to Napa, helping them to be at the forefront of the wine conversation. While in Italy, she successfully built the International Press Office Division at Studio Cru, an Italian boutique agency, where she supported wineries such as Gravner and Consorzio Asolo Prosecco among others. In 2019 she was shortlisted for the WSET/IWSC ‘Future 50 Awards’ awarding personalities who are revolutionizing the wine world. In 2021 her article "Vigna Quattro Stati, Slovenia" was published on JancisRobinson.com. In 2023 she became a member of the NYC Chapter of Les Dames d'Escoffier, a philanthropic organization of women leaders in the food, beverage and hospitality industries.
