Discover Vinitaly 2017
Italy's most important wine show, Vinitaly, will take place in Verona on April 9-12 for its 51st edition.
Vinitaly is an expression of Italy as a whole, but also finds a strong international vocation in Viniternational - the International exhibition that brings together wines from other countries in a preferential showcase. Foreign trade operators, moreover, can request a free badge to attend the fair: the program will be available until March 15.
Vinitaly features numerous tastings, playing an important role in promoting contacts between sector professionals and producers, including guided, vertical and walk-around tastings, seminars and informative events.
In addition to announcing the 2017 Wine Communicator of the Year, IWSC will also participate in the “Tasting Ex…Press” program with a special tasting. Further information regarding the calendar is available on Vinitaly's website.
