Palazzo del Ghiaccio in Milan, 5-7 March 2016: these are the coordinates for the next edition of Live Wine, the most important artisanal wine event ever organized in Milan.
The Italian Sommelier Association (Associazione Italiana Sommelier) gather in Milan a large “team” of Italian and European winemakers who produce exceptional wines capable of giving great emotions, without using chemicals in their vineyards and with no addition of additives.
ABOUT THE EVENT
The fair, aimed at both wine lovers and industry professionals (who will find specific follow-up meetings), gives the opportunity to taste natural wines and buy them directly from their producers.
Among the novelties of this Live Wine edition, an online event registration system and a special Tasting Area reserved to HoReCa operators. It is also possible to participate in meetings and themed tastings guided by Samuel Cogliati, editor (Possibilia Publisher) and popularizer. Some of these events are by reservation and have limited access: for further information, please visit the website www.livewine.it.
In addition to the meetings held at Palazzo del Ghiaccio, a series of events is planned at the Fuori Salone del Vino – the so-called LIVE WINE NIGHT 2016: many opportunities to discover grape varieties, territories and meet winegrowers! The schedule of the Live Wine Nights can be found here .
The protagonist of the event is a wine that is produced and bottled by those who follow personally every step in the vineyard and in the cellar. It comes from a vineyard that has not been treated with any chemical product; grapes have been manually harvested and do not contain additives other than those mentioned in the label.
The protagonists of Live Wine are wines coming from vineyards that have not been treated with synthetic chemicals; they can destroy any form of microfauna living in the subsoil, fundamental for its vitality and able to affect the organoleptic characteristics of the grapes.
These wines do not have unreasonable quantities of added sulphites; the wine itself produces a certain amount of sulphites during the fermentation and some growers are able to produce exceptional wines without even adding them!
