Italian wine: “The Wings of Beauty”, from the “Merano Wine Festival”

Italian wine is riding the crest of restarting on “The Wings of Beauty”, of which it is one of the most successful and admired ambassadors in the world. And, it is doing it also through live events, like the “Merano Wine Festival”. Following the forced closings caused by the pandemic, the Festival is coming back to the “elite” of Italian wine, in Merano, from November 5th to 9th, in one of the most beautiful Altoaesina towns, the Kurhaus, in the GourmetArena, at the Puccini Theater, at the Hotel Terme Merano, and more. Helmuth Köcher will stage his classics from The WineHunter Area, the prestigious collection of over 400 wines produced by more than 400 different companies, to Naturae et Purae - bio & dynamica, dedicated to the organic wine world and PIWI, to the Catwalk Champagne. Of course, there will be Master classes, insights and awards, such as “The Wine Hunter Platinum Awards 2021”, the best of the best of excellence, selected by the Merano Wine Festival, which went to wineries such as San Michele Appiano, Bellavista, Nino Negri in Clerico, Borgogno, Pio Cesare, Fino, Fontodi, Ornellaia, Maso Martis, Lungarotti, Tommasi (De Buris), Tenuta Sant'Antonio, Allegrini, Vin de la Neu by Nicola Biasi, Castellare di Castellina, Braida (Bologna family) and Ferrari, just to name a few. Thanks to the WineHunter Hub platform, created a year ago for the 29th edition of the festival, digitally, it will also be possible to follow the event online and virtually meet the producers, while the whole program will be in person and secure. “The Official Selection” is the heart of the event, among the halls of the Kurhaus, where wine producers will alternate in two sessions: the first session (Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6th) and the second session (Sunday, November 7th and Monday, November 8th). It will be the same format for the Food-Spirits-Beer, Territorium and Consortium section, hosted in the adjacent GourmetArena, which will host a maximum of 100 producers at a time, also divided into two sessions. Further, in the GourmetArena Territorium Campania Felix there will be selection of wines and culinary delicacies from the Campania Region, in addition to the scheduled cooking show, and the star will be the starred Chef, Gennaro Esposito. Naturae et Purae - bio & dynamica is also returning, and scheduled over the five days, in the Hotel Terme di Merano, dedicated to the top wines from organic and biodynamic agriculture, natural and PIWI. “The WineHunter Area”, the prestigious collection of over 400 wines produced by more than 400 different companies, will be on the podium of the Kursaal as well as at selected Merano Hotel lounges from Friday, November 5th to Sunday, November 7th. It will be possible to taste wines from a specific Region of Italy, thanks to The WineHunter Hotel Safari initiative. Catwalk Champagne, with the prestigious French Champagne maisons will, as usual, close the Festival on Tuesday, November 9th.
Throughout the event, there will be the “off-site” Merano WineCitylife, which brings together entertainment, tasting areas and master experiences along Corso Libertà, as well as Side Events and collateral events that will enhance the event through a schedule of meetings, competitions and tastings, linked to current and trendy issues in the wine and spirits world. The WineHunter Talks will present a series of meetings dedicated to sustainability in the wine chain, wines in Amphora, bio & dynamica and PIWI wines as well as a “bar chat” dedicated to spirits. “Mixed Itineraries” is an important event in the Spirits Emotion Area. It is the Cocktail & Drink Competition, in collaboration with 5 Hats, which engages 26 bartenders and 26 clubs, divided into three sessions (from November 5th to 7th). It is a special occasion to enhance the world of spirits, which, for many years, has been the star of Merano WineFestival. The competition will anticipate the presentation of the new guide, “Mixed Itineraries”, to be published in December. The guide reviews the professionals and the venues that have been awarded the new WH Globe Red, Gold and Platinum award by The WineHunter Award jury. The Gala Event, on the other hand, is scheduled for Saturday, November 6th in the Kursaal of the Kurhaus, where The WineHunter, Helmuth Köcher, in front of a selected audience, will begin the Festival, presenting guests of honor and speeches that pay homage to the pursuit of excellence contained in its motto, “Excellence is an Attitude”, the presentation of the Platinum Awards and the winners of the Emerging Sala Award by Luigi Cremona and Lorenza Vitali.
