“This year we were able to use the new “Autochtona” formula that was devised in 2020 – explained Thomas Mur, director of Fiera Bolzano – and many producers, whom we thank, have trusted us and sent their samples not only to partecipate to the “Autochtona Award”, but also to take part in what has become the largest tasting counter dedicated to wines from indigenous vines in Italy. An opportunity that everyone has greatly appreciated and that has enhanced the work that many vignerons carry out every day and that deserves to be told, as we have been doing for 18 years”.
