I’ve been so busy follow the incredible news out of Italy that I didn’t write about another really interesting development that I discovered on Friday. Vinitaly will have a new section dedicated to biodynamic wines, Italian and Foreign.
The first floor of the Palaexpo, right when you walk in, will be given over to wineries that follow these practices, both Italian and foreign wineries are welcome as long as they follow these particular agricultural practices.
I think this is very exciting news and a real change from past years. I have never been to Vini Veri o Vin Natur, two fairs that take place during Vinitaly. This is not for lack of interest but Vinitaly is such a big fair in and of itself that I am usually too busy to leave. I’m very happy to know that I can taste some of these interesting wines that I have less access to in the States without having to leave the fair this year.
It’s a real testament to how important sustainable agriculture and winemaking have become all over the world.
