Vinitaly has opted for the historic centre of Verona to offer consumers four days dedicated to wine, food and culture. The heart of Verona, from Friday 8 to, will be home to Vinitaly and the City – the event dedicated specifically to wine lovers with a «long night»on Saturday 9 April that also involves local shops.
The off-show event involves some of the finest historical locations in Verona with a programme of interesting tastings and events, not the least in the company of famous guests.
The virtual tour around the locations for Vinitaly and the City begins in one of the most elegant areas of the city, Piazza dei Signori, where professional sommeliers will help wine lovers discover the best Italian wines proposed by tutelage consortia and wine cellars, while I love Italian food will organise mini-tastings focusing on 100% Italian excellence in the food & wine points.
The Vinitaly and the City project includes a tour-tasting as well as guided wine and food tours which, between historical story-telling and tastings of wines from all over Italy, will stop off in historical sites throughout the city whereby ancient archaeological sites are also joined by famous restaurants taking part in this initiative.
