VERONA, VR, ITALIA, May 22, 2024 / -- The Italian Wine Podcast is thrilled to announce that its creator, Stevie Kim, has been presented with the “Orchidea” Award by the Josetta Saffirio winery.

This year’s accolade was presented by producer and creator Sara Vezza alongside entrepreneur Renzo Rosso, president of the Brave Wine holding company, of which Josetta Saffirio has been a part since 2023.

On May 20, 2024, Stevie Kim traveled to Monforte d'Alba, in the heart of the Langhe region, to visit the Josetta Saffirio winery and receive the prestigious award in person. «We are delighted to present Stevie Kim with the Orchidea Award,» announced Sara Vezza and Renzo Rosso. «Stevie has dedicated her life to the communication of the world of wine, becoming a true global ambassador of Italian wine production.»

«Stevie represents values that we cherish, such as quality, excellence, and a commitment to sustainability,» Vezza and Rosso continued. «We entrust her with a row of Nebbiolo vines for adoption, which will produce Josetta Saffirio Barolo grapes. We look forward to welcoming her during the harvest to share in the fruits of this vintage.»
