After the huge success in Stockholm last April, Il Botolo was pleased to take part again in the E4Quality European Project, this time in Berlin, on October 27 and 28.
E4Quality is a two-year project in collaboration with the Consorzio Barbera d’Asti and Vini del Monferrato that wants to promote in a new and innovative way the story of quality agricultural products of the Piedmont region.
The German chapter of the project took place in Berlin and featured a walk around tasting on October 27 in the Cecconi’s Hall of the SohoHaus Hotel, with professionals from the food and beverage sector, journalists and wine lovers.
Following the walk around, a dinner was held for about 40 guests from the wine industry at the prestigious and famous Italian restaurant, Cecconi’s. On the 28th, a masterclass was held with il Botolo and other Piedmont wine producers and industry experts, addressing a large audience of professionals, communicators and potential customers, dedicated to the denominations of Barbera d’Asti docg and Ruche’ di Castagnole Monferrato docg. The masterclass was led by writer and lecturer Michele Longo (Italian curator for Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book), and renowned Master of Wine Romana Echensperger, best German Sommelier 2005, head sommelier of the 3 star Michelin restaurant “Vendôme a Cologne “(pluri winner of “Best Restaurant in Germany”) and wine journalist of the German Wine Institute.
The 2-day event concluded with a second walk around tasting held on October 28 where guests could meet and talk to producers and taste all of the wines featured.
Over 100 local professionals from Stockholm and Uppsala took part in yet another successful wine event organized by the E4quality project and promoted by the Consorzio Barbera d’Asti e Vini del Monferrato.
This is the conclusion reached by 150 wine tasters gathered by Coldiretti last December at the San Secondo Cultural Center for the annual preview dedicated to “Barbera d’Asti docg”, now in its 18th edition.
