What is #barbera2?
- 10 Barbera, 5 from Piemonte, Italy, and 5 from USA
- 10 winemakers
- many terroir
- 1 tasting table
- bloggers (wine & food, but not exclusively)
- wine lovers
- 1 location, Foro Boario, Nizza Monferrato (AT), Italy
- 2 days international event
The real protagonists of #barbera2 will of course be Barbera, as well as its producers and the specific terroir these Barberas come from. And this time we’re not only talking about Piemonte but…hear hear!, also Barberas coming from the West Coast of North America.
#barbera2 will be a journey across the Barbera vine and winesemerging from the different terroir.
10 Barberas will be protagonists of an unbiased tasting event, including 5 Barbera from Piemonte region (Italy) and 5 from North America.
But do not expect to meet only big wine experts; at #barbera2 everyone will be welcome to express his/her opinion about the wine. We want to bring out perfumes and flavours of the various terroir, so apparently distant from one another. It is going to be a gathering of different lands and wine cultures. The dialog is unstaged with total freedom of thought, no scores, no winners no losers.
