Verona

Italy

April 9, 2017 to April 12, 2017

Producers, importers, distributors, restaurateurs, technicians, journalists and opinion leaders from all around the world travel to Verona to learn about market trends, discover innovations and create new business opportunities.
Four days of major events, meetings, tastings and targeted workshops encouraging contacts between exhibiting cellars and trade operators, together with an impressive convention programme discussing and analysing topics associated with supply and demand in Italy, Europe and the rest of the world.

Vinitaly: where business meets tradition, innovation and glamour.

An extraordinary variety of red, white, rosé and sparkling wines representing every part of Italy and an entire Hall - Vininternational - highlighting wines from the main international wine-making countries.

An important role in promoting contacts between sector professionals and producers is played by the numerous tastings scheduled over the four days of the Exhibition: guided and walk-around tastings, prestigious vertical tastings, seminars and informative events.

A particularly exclusive feature of Vinitaly is the ability to find - thanks to scheduling in conjunction with the International Sol&Agrifood event - the best wine and agro-food products, while Enolitech focuses on technologies and technical systems for the wine and olive oil world.

Verona and "Vinitaly and the City"

Verona is world famous for Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" and is also a Unesco "World Heritage Site". A city of art, business and tourism: theatres, exhibitions and great many cultural events. During Vinitaly the squares in the historic centre come alive with Vinitaly and The City: the Off-Show event for all wine lovers.

The Great Wine Capitals Global Network announced early November that it has accepted Verona’s application to join the Network, joining Adelaide | South Australia, Bilbao | Rioja, Bordeaux, Cape Town | Cape Winelands, Mainz | Rheinhessen, Mendoza, Porto, San Francisco | Napa Valley and Valparaiso | Casablanca Valley.

Mr. Nicola Baldo, member of the board of the Chamber of Commerce of Verona, in charge of Tourism, signed the partnership agreement at a ceremony on November 6 during the Network’s Annual General Meeting in Porto.

Verona is the second largest and second most populous province in the Veneto region in northeastern Italy. It is the leading Italian producer in the food sector and in the production of marble and natural stone, Italy’s largest producer of quality wines and the country’s fourth most important tourist destination after Venice, Rome and Florence.

The province of Verona and its wine regions host 5 DOCGs (Amarone della Valpolicella, Bardolino Superiore, Recioto della Valpolicella, Recioto di Soave and Soave Superiore) and 14 DOCs. Wine accounts for 9% of total exports from the province that is the leader in Italian wine exports with a 12% share.

Verona University is one of the most important centers of higher learning in Italy, with 23.000 students and 1500 faculty and staff.  The university’s 15 departments and the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery offer 60 undergraduate degrees, 26 Masters courses, 40 specialization schools and 16 master classes.

The university offers several undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs in wine science and wine education.

It is an honor for the Great Wine Capitals to welcome a new Italian partner in the Network. This will certainly increase the GWC impact in terms of wine tourism around the world.
