Barolo and Brunello together in Copenhagen for the third consecutive year
The two great historic wines of Piedmont and Tuscany will be presented together at the prestigious Børsen Palace.
Friday, November 25th 2016, following the success of the first two editions, the event “Barolo & Brunello the Italian Kings” returns to confirm the strong alliance between the two wines and symbol of Italian wine excellence signed two years ago right in Copenhagen: fifteen Brunello producers and as many of Barolo will therefore once again be protagonists in a day of tastings entirely dedicated to end users and various representatives of the sector, such as journalists, restaurateurs, sommeliers and importers.
The event is organized and promoted by the consortium I Vini del Piemonte in cooperation with Strada del Barolo e grandi vini di Langa, Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino and CIA of Alba and is supported by the Italian Embassy in Copenhagen.
As with the first two editions, this third edition of “Barolo & Brunello the Italian Kings” will be held at Børsen Palace, the historic seat of the Stock Exchange in the heart of the city that, in recent years, has already hosted the eight other editions of the Copenhagen Barolo & Friends Event. Decisive for the choice of location was, above all, the experience acquired by the consortium I Vini del Piemonte that, right here in Copenhagen, gave the Piedmont producers the greatest satisfaction.
The Danish market has proven to be among the most receptive for what concerns top quality red wines: Denmark is one of the countries where Italian wine is better known and appreciated and, in recent years, the steady growth in demand for quality wines has meant that Italy became the largest wine exporter in this country, surpassing France, not only in terms of volume but also in terms of economic value. Moreover, the Danish public Is quite prepared and loves, in particular, the wine and food products of excellence.
