Italian wine producers from regions across Southern Italian regions will be in Dublin this February 27th, for the Borsa Vini Italiani wine showcase. Arranged by the Italian Trade Agency, the events, which tranlates as The Italian Wine Exchange, will see a delegation of 30 Italian wine producers from southern Italy and the islands of the region present their products at Dublin’s Conrad Hotel, Earlsfort Terrace, from midday – 6pm.
The producers will hail from regions including Campania, Calabria, Basilicata, Puglia , Sicily, Abruzzo, Molise and Sardegna, and all will be seeking representation in Ireland’s wine sector. Like most “old world” regions, Italy’s winemaking tradition dates back thousands of years. It is one of the world’s largest wine producing countries by volume, contributing 20% of the global total – second only to France. It is estimated there are more than 1m vineyards under cultivation across the country.
Also at Borsa Vini Italiani, John Wilson of the Irish Times will lead a masterclass to discover these wines of southern Italy and the islands. This masterclass will take place on the day, from 11am – midday. Places are limited and will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.
For retailers seeking quality wines that are innovative and commerical, this event offers a strong opportunity to update and expand one’s portfolio.
