About the Wine Week

The city of Milan is host its very first Milano Wine Week offering 7 full days packed with tastings, talks, conferences and initiatives on the multi-faceted world of wine, held in different locations and finding their beating heart in Palazzo Bovara (near Porta Venezia). The event – which follows a brand-new format – is held in contemporary with the well-established ‘La Vendemmia di Via Montenapoleone’, an important initiative “with a focus on top quality and luxury labels.”
Conversely from what many can think, Milano Wine Week is not an alternative to Vinitaly, the major wine fair held in the city of Vicenza, but more likely a new initiative to promote the knowledge of Italian wine within Italy for a predoominantly Italian domestic audience. Milano Food week, indeed, is not a fair displaying new-ins in the sector, but a festival developed around the different meanings of wine in Italy and, more precisely, in Milan.
Echoing the words of Federico Gordini, founder of the Milano Wine Week, “Milan will not become the Italian capital of wine, though it will turn into the capital of the communication and business around this sector”.
The project was realized with the contribution of an event committee chaired by Luciano Ferraro, central editor in chief of Corriere della Sera and editor of the DiVini blog, which includes some of the most important popularizers and experts of Italian wine: Daniele Cernilli, founder of the “DoctorWine” guide, Andrea Grignaffini, director of Spirito diVino and member of the scientific committee of ALMA, Pier Bergonzi, Deputy Director of the Gazzetta dello Sport and curator of the Pop Wine ranking, Gigi Brozzoni, curator of the Golden Guide I Vini di Veronelli, e Antonio Paolini, Gambero Rosso’s food and wine journalist.
