The unquestioned leading event for Danish sector professionals and wine lovers
Once again the Barolo & Friends Event will take place at Børsen, a seventeenth-century palace considered one of the most prestigious location of Copenhagen: Friday 4 June 2021, for the twelfth consecutive edition, at least 40 wine producers from the main wine-producing areas of Piemonte are awaited.
Piemonte is one of the most important wine regions in the world: a fertile area where high quality wines are produced in the best conditions. The winemakers will personally present to Danish consumers their fine bottles of Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Timorasso and other great Piedmontese wines during a “walk around tasting” where at least 150 different labels will be available!
One of the great innovations of the 2021 edition will be an in-depth focus about the white wines from Piemonte, thanks to the partnership with some important Piedmontese consortia, including the Consorzio Tutela Vini D.O.C. Caluso Carema Canavese and the Consorzio tutela vini Colli Tortonesi, as well as some important producers of Arneis and Cortese, which will be present in the walk around tasting and as part of two in-depth master classes.
In addition, there will be a room entirely dedicated to food products from all over Italy, where visitors can taste the flavors and aromas of the “Belpaese”!
As usual, the event will be divided into three different sessions, in the shape of a “walk around tasting”: the first will be reserved for sector operators, the other two will be open to the paying final consumers and a stay in the Langhe for two people will be awarded.
As part of the trade session there will be three in-depth Master classes led by the renowned journalist Thomas Ilkjær: one of these will be dedicated to Nizza DOCG (100% Barbera grape variety) and will be organized in collaboration with the Associazione Produttori del Nizza and and the other two to the Piedmontese white grape varieties Arneis, Erbaluce, Cortese and Timorasso.
At the entrance you will receive your tasting glass and you will spend 2 hours discovering Barolo and its “friends”, the wines from other areas of Piemonte. Come and taste the exclusive wines and find your favorites!
Don’t miss the chance to win a stay for two people in the Langhe hills, UNESCO World Heritage: the prize will be drawn randomly among the participants during both sessions!
