Dr. Lucio Caputo, president of the Italian Wine & Food Institute, said of the award, “I have followed Joshua’s activities for many years and I have always admired his professionalism, dedication and leadership. With his passion, his drive and his knowledge of wine, he stands out as one of the best wine editors and has greatly furthered the knowledge of American consumers on wines in general, and particularly Italian wine.” Greene is one of four Wine Leader Award recipients in 2017; the other honorees this year are Piero Selvaggio of Valentino in Los Angeles; Marc D. Taub, president and CEO of the wine-importing company Palm Bay International; and Kevin Zraly, author and founder of the Windows on the World Wine School.
