The official program of the 2nd anniversary of the #winelover community.


I’m very proud to announce… The official program of the 2nd anniversary of the #winelover community!

14 February

Meet at 10:30 at ExpoMittelSchool of Trieste (Via San Nicolò, 5)

Meeting with winemakers of the Carso and tasting of indigenous varieties: Vitovska, Malvasia Istriana and Terrano.

Seminar: Prosecco or Glera? The name Prosecco is tied to the village of the Carso region that carries this name, but is Prosecco produced in the Carso?

Light Lunch

Seminar: Wine and Science, what is the relationship? Trieste is a city of science at an international level and we will meet with a geneticist who studies the relationship between genes, senses and diet. We will play with our senses and wine.

Let’s have a coffee in Trieste: A walk in the city with the night stars. Trieste is the meeting of sea and rock, enclosed by the gulf and the bluffs of the Carso. Its streets and its buildings live in a magical atmosphere of Central Europe.
