The consortium “I Vini del Piemonte” and the wine guide published by “Slow Food” present a selection of Italian producers in the Land of the Raising Sun.
On November 24th 2015, Tokyo has been the stage for an extraordinary event to present Italian wines, with a focus on Piedmont, one of the most important wine areas of the world, homeland of Barolo and Barbaresco.
From 11.00am to 5.00pm in the elegant Happo-en, Japanese sector professionals had the opportunity to taste the top quality Italian wine selected by the guide of Slow Food Editor together with a selection of the best Piedmontese wines of the producers members of the consortium I Vini del Piemonte.
The event, organized in cooperation with Ideazione srl, the Italian Chmber of Commerce in Japan and the ICE of Tokyo, was shaped as a “Walk Around Tasting”. During the event were held two seminars hosted by Isao Miyajima, journalist considered among the biggest wine experts in Japan: 1.00pm/2.00pm: seminar on Italian wines – The infinite potential of Italian wine; 3.00pm/4.00pm: seminar on Piedmontese wines – Great reds of Piedmont: the richness of its various expressions
I Vini del Piemonte is a consortium that includes some 160 Piedmontese wine companies. The aim is to promote and communicate in the best way possible the richness and peculiarities of the different Piedmontese wine designations. Every year, the consortium organizes more than 20 promotional initiatives in different countries around the world.
Slow Wine is the Italian wine guide published by Slow Food Editor: not only reviews and organoleptic descriptions but a real wine storytelling where the deep and direct knowledge of the wine companies is the one and only protagonist.
