Considering the great popularity of the Piedmontese wines in Denmark and the experience gained over the years, thanks to the organization of ten 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 Autumn 2018, a series of appointments with the “Piemonte Wine School” in Copenhagen.
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, as well as strengthening the promotion in one of the most strategic markets for the Piedmontese wines, in order to boost the sales of the wine companies which are members of our consortium.
The 2018 programme includes four tasting seminars of Piedmontese wines, which will take place in the prestigious cooking school Hotel – og Restaurantskolen of Copenhagen.
The lessons will have the form of a Wine Tasting Experience® and 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 Christian Thorsholt Jacobsen, one of Denmark’s most renowned sommeliers, co-owner and head sommelier at restaurant Anarki and teacher at Scandinavian Wine Academy – Denmark.
The Wine Tasting Experience® is a type of tasting event devised by Strada del Barolo e grandi vini di Langa for final consumers, to spread the knowledge of the Piedmontese wines. This kind of event goes beyond the traditional tasting; first of all because it offers the opportunity to compare labels of different producers in one single appointment, and second because it has a strong educational spirit since each experience is led by an expert who, with the help of a supporting video and interactive tools, can reveal secrets and curiosities about the wines presented to the public.
