At Merano WineFestival until Nov. 11
Italy’s most important wine event, Merano WineFestival, runs until November 11. The Festival showcases top-quality wine from more than 500 selected Italian and international winemakers alongside products from more than 100 gastronomical masters and provides an opportunity for all those working in the wine and haute gastronomie industries to unite and compare ideas.
At the heart of the program is Cult 2014, a special event dedicated to 40 winemakers that organizers believe have had the greatest impact on Italian wine history. Among these “pioneers of Italian wine” are Allegrini, Biondi Santi Tenuta il Greppo, Cantine San Leonardo, Mastroberardino and Tenuta San Guido. The Culinaria section displays a selection of top Italian and international products while bio&dynamica explores the definition of “organic wine.”
Visitors have plenty of opportunities to judge the quality of products themselves, with wine master classes on offer and an artisan beer section, and a gourmet food hall spread over 300 meters. Cooking shows also take place at the festival, with top chefs showing visitors how to achieve cuisine of the highest quality.
Until November 11
