On the 8th February 2018 Gambero Rosso returns to London, showcasing 50 of the most distinguished cellars in Italian wine production!
During the day, UK trade and press professionals will have the opportunity to taste the finest wines featured in Vini d’Italia 2018, one of the most authoritative guides about the complex world of Italian wines. Now available in English, German, Chinese and Japanese, the 31st edition of the guide includes more than 22,000 wines and 436 awarded with the prestigious Tre Bicchieri: the selection is the result of a careful tasting of over 40,000 labels.
The London event will also feature two exclusive masterclasses aimed at gaining a valuable insight on the wines present at the event. This year there will be a dedicated mention of the 2018 Special Awards, such as Red of the Year, White of the Year and Sparkling of the Year. The awards reflect Gambero Rosso’s values when it comes to assessing the Italian wine industry, and they are the result of the selection carried out by more than 60 tasters.
For the first time, the event will showcase a special selection of the best value-for-money wines awarded in the Berebene guide. The so-called “smartwines” can be purchased in Italy for less than €13 without compromising the quality. Gambero Rosso will also award the best Italian restaurants in London featured in the new digital guide Top Italian Restaurants, which includes fine dining restaurants, trattorie, pizzerias and wine bars.
In the evening the event will open its doors to a selected group of wine lovers, so that attendees can celebrate the Italian wines in style.
All the signs point towards this being an event fit for a connoisseur! Why not sign up and be a part of it too?
The event takes place on the 8th February 2018 at the Royal Horticultural Halls, 80 Vincent Square, Westminster, London SW1P 2PE.
From 12.00pm to 5pm the event is open exclusively to trade and press, while from 5pm to 7pm it will also welcome wine enthusiasts.
