“Piemonte Wine School” in Denmark: 2020 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 eleven 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 2020, 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 2020 program includes four tasting seminars of Piedmontese wines in the prestigious cooking school Hotel – og Restaurantskolen of Copenhagen and a fith seminar to be held in Aarhus, at the Hotel Oasia.

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 many faces of Nebbiolo
    Nebbiolo is doubtless Piedmonts most famous grape variety. It has a unique and recognizable profile but changes nevertheless depending on growing condition and vinification. In this lecture, we shall take a detailed look at Nebbiolo and test its many versions from all over the region.

  • 8 October 2020 – 17.30/19.00 – Hotel – og Restaurantskolen, Copenhagen
    The subzones of Barolo
    No other Italian wine district has had a historical focus on single vineyards and subzones more intense than Barolo, where the Cru-wines has been on top of the agenda for decades. In this lecture we will taste examples of the different Barolo-terroirs and discuss what causes the more or less pronounced differences.
