June 21, 2006 – New York, NY…International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF) announced today that flavorist Marie Wright will be speaking at the Robert
Mondavi Winery's prestigious TASTE3 Conference at the COPIA Center for Wine, Food, and the Arts taking place July 13 – 16.

The topic of Ms. Wright's talk will be IFF's collaboration with Visionaire, the art and fashion quarterly, on Visionaire 47 TASTE. This groundbreaking project marries concepts and visuals by leading chefs, photographers, and painters with tastes created by IFF's flavorists. The tastes, presented on breath films, range from the delicious and literal to the abstract and surprising. Ms. Wright was project leader on the IFF/Visionaire collaboration as well as a contributing flavorist to the project. She will be speaking in the segment of the conference on innovation called New Frontiers.

“IFF embraces and nurtures innovation as one of its core competencies and our collaboration with Visionaire is a perfect illustration of that strength. We are thrilled that Marie will be speaking at this extraordinary event.”
Nicolas Mirzayantz – SVP Fine Fragrance & Beauty Care, North American Regional Manager

In addition to Ms. Wright's speech at the conference, there will be an exhibit of Visionaire 47 TASTE where attendees can sample all 12 tastes and view the accompanying artwork.

“This is a great opportunity for people who are passionate about food, wine, and the arts to share in our passion for provoking the senses in ways they'd never imagined.” Marie Wright – Flavor Creation Manager, Global Accounts

TASTE3 brings together 30 of the most compelling writers, thinkers, chefs, winemakers, journalists, artisans, and executives as speakers, joining more than 250 attendees who are every bit as influential and tapped-in as the speakers presenting. Created by Robert Mondavi Winery in honor of its 40th Anniversary, TASTE3 will thrill, tantalize, engage, intrigue, provoke, and inspire both its audience and its speakers.
