On May 17th 2016, the financial capital of the Swiss Confederation hosted the event dedicated to the top quality Piedmontese wines.
The consortium of promotion I Vini del Piemonte stopped in Zurich for the sixth edition of the Barolo & Friends Event, showing once again the great potential of Piedmontese wines on the Swiss market: almost 300 wine-lovers crowded the halls of the prestigious Zunfthaus zur Saffran to taste the wines of some thirty producers from Piemonte.
Even for this sixth edition the consortium worked in synergy with the Italian Chamber of Commerce for Switzerland and Vinum, the main Swiss magazine dedicated to wine, which organized two “Atelier Piemonte”, tasting workshops with wines of excellence.
I Vini del Piemonte continues to look with great interest to the Swiss market, a market of consumers who traditionally appreciate quality products and often choose to spend their holidays in Piedmont, attracted not only by its landscape and food traditions, but also by its great wines, of which many of them are experienced connoisseurs.
