Registration Deadline: Oct 17, 2014
Event Type: Trade Tasting/Fair,Other
Description: The 2014 Wine Pleasures Workshop: Buyer meets ITALIAN Cellar will take place in Assisi, Umbria, Italy, from Monday 27 – Wednesday 29 October 2014.
Bringing together small to medium sized boutique wineries of all regions of Italy including: Veneto, Sicilia, Campania, Lombardia, Abruzzo, Marchè, Umbria and Toscana and wine importers, wholesalers, retailers and HORECA from around the world, this year’s workshop will be the third of its kind in Italy.
As we are in Italy, we have ensured that buyers will experience the incredible range and diversity of Italian wines. We’re talking about light crisp soft whites such as Pinot Grigio, the slightly sweet and fruity Soave white, the various kinds of Marsala and fortified wines of Sicily, big and bold Umbrian and Toscana reds and even bubbly and expressive sparkling wines of Veneto. In short, we are absolutely confident that by the end of this Wine Pleasures Workshop you too will have an even greater love of Italian wines, and a much greater understanding of what this country can produce.
In addition, all participants will experience wine matching of both traditional and fusion Italian cuisine, have some fantastic chats over lunches and dinners and take part in a themed Italian tasting as well as, of course taking in part in one to one private wine tasting meetings with wine makers and winery owners. All of which will make you want to plan your follow-up trip to Italy before you’ve arrived home. Sounds pretty good so far, doesn’t it?
