“Piemonte Wine School” in Denmark: 2022 calendar

Copenhagen and Aarhus will host seminars guided by Thomas Ilkjær and Christian Thoursholt Jacobsen

A centre for the spread and promotion of the Piedmontese wine culture

Considering the great popularity of the Piedmontese wines in Denmark and the experience gained over the years, thanks to the organization of 13 editions in a row of the Barolo & Friends Event in the Danish capital, the consortium of promotion I Vini del Piemonte has confirmed, also for 2022, a series of appointments with the “Piemonte Wine School” in Copenhagen and Aarhus.

This ambitious and innovative project, started with great success in 2017, aims at building a centre for the spread and promotion of the Piedmontese wine culture, to meet the demand of the Danish public, which in recent years has shown a huge interest in Piedmontese wines.

The 2022 program includes four tasting seminars of Piedmontese wines in the prestigious cooking school Hotel – og Restaurantskolen of Copenhagen and other two seminars to be held in Aarhus (venue to be defined).

The lessons will be held by Thomas Ilkjær, director of the Piemonte Wine School in Denmark, responsible of Vinakademiet, the school for sommeliers in Copenaghen, and author of the most important guide on Italian wines published in North Europe and by Christian Thoursholt Jacobsen.


The titles of the seminars will be scheduled according to the candidacies of the companies to provide a comprehensive and exhaustive overview of the Piedmont wine producing sector.
