RADICI DEL SUD 2019: THE WINE EXHIBITION BECOMES DIGITAL
MEMORvINO and the Taste & Buy formula, the news of the 2019 edition. Appointment from 4 to 10 June in Bari with the main national and international buyers and journalists
The 14th edition of Radici del Sud takes shape and promises to be full of news. From June 4 to 10 of 2019, the Castle di Sannicandro di Bari will host the Exhibition of Southern Italian Wine and Oil, which this year will see the presence of MEMORvino, the glass that takes note of the wine you drink, and an even wider participation of Italian and foreign buyers and journalists, who will be involved in the B2B meetings with the producers and will compose the Radici del Sud jury.
<Nicola Campanile, organizer of the event - will feature a series of innovative digital initiatives that will make the experience even more complete: an example is the use of MEMORvINO at the tasting tables, a "smart glass" that creates an engaging and interactive relationship between producers and visitors through the profiling of the data related to the tasted wines, helping professionals and enthusiasts to not lose any information on tastings>>.
The Radici del Sud Guides will be available again this year in digital editions. The guides, dedicated to the best wines, restaurants and pizzerias in Southern Italy, will be contained in two applications available for android and iOs, downloadable from the respective app stores.
During Radici del Sud will also be activated the "Taste & Buy" formula, a B2B matching service that will facilitate the meeting between winemakers and visitors on June 10: the public will be able to order the chosen wines and the producer will deliver them at the end of the event.
Confirmations have already arrived from Australia with Justin Dry, from the United States with Francesca Farina and from Canada with Mark Briand, who will be joined by Ahrens Ulf from Sweden and Geir Haug from Norway, together with some Swedish, English and German colleagues and Polish.
