A new year is in front of us, so let's start with two interesting tastings of Amarone della Valpolicella!

The first one is scheduled on 23th January, 2014. In the nice hotel and restaurant Villa de Winkels,  a tasting of Amarone della Valpolicella is hosted (5.00 p.m. - 10 p.m.). Many wine producers are attending this appointment to introducing their best Amarone della Valpolicella from different vintages, to pair with the typical foods of the buffet. For the wine pros, on 3.30 p.m. there is a conference, by Esprit de Dryades: "How a forest has to be managed to produce oak for barrels".

Ticket:  40 Euro/person. For any infos, call +390456500133. 

The second event is on 25th and 26th January, 2014. In Verona downtown, in the historical Palazzo della Gran Guardia (very close to Arena), "Anteprima Amarone 2010" ("Amarone Preview 2010") is  hosted. The winelovers will have this year an import an role, as they will be envolved to express their preferences through a competition. In the entrance they will receive a potscard where they have to write their "3 best wines" tasted.

Among all the postcards, three winners will be drawn, and will benefit from a free personalized tasting of wines in one of their favorite wineries. 

Hours: Saturday: 4.00 p.m. - 7.00 p.m. Sunday: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
