A significant appointment for the Italian and international wine world.
Like every year, the international exhibition dedicated to wines and spirits, now arrived at its 45th edition, was held in Verona, from April 7th, for over 5 days. With nearly four thousand exhibitors, of which the half were only European, this event represents an opportunity of meeting for all stakeholders in the industry, from manufacturers to distributors, from connoisseurs to simple end-users, an international stage dedicated to the most beloved nectar.
In the rich program of events, the Italian regions and their valuable products took over the show. Our company was also there with our finest wines.
In addition to wine testing, conventions and workshops were held based on relevant topics such as the current financial difficulties and the tragic seismic event in Japan, which is among the countries that more appreciate these products. This year Vinitaly was also a protagonist of the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Unity of Italy with the “Unity of Italy Bottle”: A bottle of wine made of blends of 20 pure reds and 20 pure whites representing a grape variety from each of the 20 Italian regions.
Let’s virtually drink a toast to Italy in all its shapes picturing them before and after a good glass of Italian wine.
