The meeting for the year 2012 takes place from 19th to 21st April, for a three day event dedicated to professionals and enthusiasts, with wine and food tastings of excellence, in-depth seminars and presentations of Piemontese tourist heritage.
The event is organized by Consorzio I Vini del Piemonte together with Strada del Barolo, and, as last year, with the prestigious participation of Danish newspaper Berlingske – in charge of the event’s promotion in Denmark and the presale of tickets – as well as with other important Danish partners.
As in the previous editions of the Kermesse, wine will be the great protagonist. But the Consortium will also bring to Denmark the very best of Piedmontese food production, thanks to the cooperation run with many representatives of the regional production (there will be a whole area dedicated to traditional cheeses and other great products).

After that, there will be two sessions open to the public (15.00-17.30; 18.00-20.30) to allow wine lovers to meet the producers and taste the great Piedmontese wines together with the very best of Barolo food production.
