Do you like Trentino Alto Adige? Have you ever been there? During 2017, I visited this region very often for some wine events and tastings. In October and November in particular, I took part in Autochtona, Ferrari Trento 1995 tasting and Merano WineFestival. Merano WineFestival 2017 was the 26th edition! It's the "winter" appointment for all wine lovers. Every year, this fair gets more and more attention.
What's the most epic wine tasting in which you have taken part? It was on a Sunday when I received a call: "Hey Simone, I'm Matteo! What're your plans for tomorrow? I want to invite you to a horizontal tasting of the Ferrari Trento 1995 vintage with some friends." At that moment I was very surprised. But, who is Matteo? Matteo Lunelli is the president and CEO of Ferrari Trento, and CEO of the Lunelli Group. That horizontal tasting was a unique opportunity, so I was delighted to accept with great pleasure and on Monday I went to Trento. Now, I'm here to explain to you why it was so epic. Are you ready? Let's start!
Do you remember Vitae? It's the official wine guide of AIS, entirely dedicated to Italian wines. Finally, the new edition: Vitae 2018 is available. I took part in the official launch in Milan, after Autochtona and Bottiglie Aperte. The presentation event is one of my favorite wine events! If you lost my Instagram Stories, I'm here to give you more details about the new edition and how the official launch was. Are you ready? Let's start!
Do you know the story of Winery Lovers? Winery Lovers was born on 28th of January 2016 on Instagram. You probably already read on the About me page, that I graduated in Engineering of Computing Systems from Politecnico of Milano. But I have one greater passion: wine. This is the reason why I created Winery Lovers. I've always put the community at the center, sharing the best pics that tagged #winerylovers. The beauty of wine is that you never stop learning about it. The number of wines around the world is countless! And I like that you can share your personal discoveries in the wine trade with the other "winery lovers".
What was the last wine tour in which you took part? A wine tour is an outstanding experience. Personally, to understand the different realities around wine I prefer this approach than the fairs. Of course, a wine event such as Autochtona or Bottiglie Aperte allows you to discover several wines in just an hour. But the winemaker has only a few minutes to get you to understand his winery, his vineyards, his wine philosophy and his wines. It's a hard task! If you take part in a wine tour, you can really immerse yourself in the experience in real time and not just in your mind. What do you think about this? On Saturday, 16th of December I'll take part in the first Luxury Day Tour organized by The Grand Wine Tour. I'm really excited about this opportunity!
