181 wineries expected at “Radici del Sud” before international experts and a wide public of wine lovers
The tenth Exhibition of South Italian wines proves to be a crowd puller event
The great opportunity to get in touch with the world’s leading experts and the most well known international buyers -who will be entrusted with the fate of the wines produced with accuracy and great talent- has pushed 181 wineries (listed below) to join this successful exhibition that has given a remarkable stimulus to the peculiar South Italian wine market for 10 years, thus contributing to make it immediately recognizable far beyond the national borders. The complex yet tested formula which combines several activities to be carried out on the seven days when Radici del Sud will take place at Rondò Hotel in Bari allows the many guests to understand and to appreciate the nature of the special native wines to the best, thus giving the producers the opportunity to promote them effectively.
The rich and articulate program includes three days of btob meetings between the producing wineries and both national and international buyers who will attend the exhibition (link to the buyers). The meetings are already fully booked. It is no more possible to enter them. There will also be thematic in-depth analysis carried out by some world’s leading wine experts (link to the reporters) among them the focus on the Asian market led by Debra Meiburg, Master of Wine from Hong Kong is particularly interesting- on Friday 12 of June- ,but also vertical tastings and comparisons of wines, as well as press tours throughout the production areas reserved to the insiders and to the press operators. Two days will be devoted to the tasting of over 370 competing labels by two different juries made up of Italian and foreign experts who will be asked to express an uneasy evaluation of the wines gathered according to the grape they are produced from.
The final day will be devoted to the Exhibition of South Italian wines that will be held in the large spaces of Masseria Corte di Torrelonga (BA) and opened to the public from 10.00a.m. to 8.00 p.m., where it will be possible to visit the stands of about 130 wineries as well as those reserved to the best local gastronomy where visitors will appreciate the most representative products of our South Italy, beyond the self service area opened at lunch time. Before the closure of the Exhibition, at 7.30 p.m., the winning wines of the 2015 Edition will be announced during the scheduled conference . The night will continue in the charming park of the farm with the big end devoted to all South Italian wines attending the tenth edition of Radici del Sud that can be tasted with some dishes prepared by skilled chefs coming from Apulia and other Southern regions.
Both wine experts and lovers can follow the blind-tasting sessions and join the final dinner by submitting a request starting from 20th of May visiting Radici del Sud website.
