From 7 to 11 April 2017, “Vinitaly and the City”, the Vinitaly event outside the city walls of Verona, will take place in the picturesque setting of Bardolino.
Vinitaly, the worldwide leading fair in the wine sector, expands for the first time choosing Bardolino, a reference point for quality.
The project, developed by Top Bardolino Foundation in collaboration with Verona Fair, helps the historic lakeside town to draw the attention of experts (entrepreneurs, buyers, companies, journalists) and visitors to the winegrowing and top wine products of the territory.
Bardolino celebrates the Vinitaly brand with mapping shows, video projections and art installations and presents itself in a unique and impressive festive dress.
The lakeside promenade Cornicello and the Carrara Bottagisio Park will be the hosts of various Lake Garda wine consortia which are linked to the production of wines like Bardolino, Lugana, Valpolicella and Custoza.
The DOC Prosecco Consortium will be special guest of this event, attracting even more people considering the enormous success in 2016, with a production of 90 million bottles and an increase of 6% compared to 2014.
Modern spaces will be used for advertising and tastings of local products. Furthermore, there will be an information area about local products and wine culture.
The Villa Carrara Bottagisio and the park in front of it will be the hosts for guided tastings with professional sommeliers and concerts by national and international artists.
