VieVinum 2022 will present two highly diverse Italian wine-growing regions, South Tyrol and Sicily, as this year’s guests of honour. Each of these regions are highly magnetic to wine lovers, who can experience an in-depth look into the essence of the wines through masterclasses offered at the School of Wine.
Two wine-growing regions of one country whose viticultural conditions are very diverse. The Alps and Etna are two indepedent “poles“ that have allowed for completely individual terroirs to develop - today they are home to rare grape varieties such as Grillo, Nero d'Avola, Lagrein and even Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc). As much as South Tyrol and Sicily are united by “otherness“, winemakers in both regions have successfully recognised the importance of the autochthonous grape varieties and viticultural attributes there, and have dedicated themselves to preserving them. They are rightly appreciated and celebrated internationally for this unwavering commitment.
