Superwhites is back!


- 02 Apr 01

The aim of the Superwhites event is to promote the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, Italy's most famous white wine area. Here, the tradition of wine production goes hand in hand with wonderful gastronomic delicacies such San Daniele ham and goose liver, and these products and others were combined with resounding success last year at the first edition of Superwhites in New York and Rome.The best way to introduce a region and allow people to get to know it better is through its tastes and flavours. This is the formula we will be using once more this year in three meetings, organized by Slow Food Friuli, during which we shall introduce 45 Friuli-Venezia Giulia wineries specially selected from the Italian Wines guide, a joint publication by Slow Food and Gambero Rosso. For several years now, this leading guide, now in its fourteenth edition, has also been published in English and German. The wines to be tasted during Superwhites'have been selected from the list of those which achieved the highest ratings (Two or Three Glass symbols) in the 2001 edition of the guide.
The dates for 'Superwhites 2001' are:

New York, April 21-22
Zurich, second half of October (to be confirmed)
Rome, November 17-18

The three events will offer a precious opportunity to take part in Taste Workshops and a Grand Tasting of the great food and wine of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
