A Journey Through Italian Wine Excellence

Verona has long been an important centre for Italian agriculture and wine-making. And while trade shows for other sectors of agriculture have been around for a long time, an event just for wine? That was new — and, as it turned out, much needed! Thought of in 1967 by Angelo Betti, a journalist and PR specialist, the Verona fair started as a local wine-tasting day. He wanted to create an opportunity for regional wine-makers to show off their products. Considering that Vinitaly is going into its 56th year, his endeavour has been a huge success. Today, visitors can taste drops from famous regions such as Apulia, Umbria, and Veneto as well as meet up-and-coming producers from other regions.

Discovering the Latest Trends in the Sector

We get it: as long as wine is involved, any event will be popular. But what exactly does this trade fair have to offer? Well, look no further! At this famous wine fair in Italy, producers from around the world display their latest and greatest products. For example, where else do you have the opportunity to compare world-famous Italian wines to competitors from Argentina or Australia?

But that’s not all. Throughout the event, the organizers host a plethora of workshops, seminars and exhibitions introducing important industry trends and practices. One such exhibition is the Vinitaly Bio. Due to popular demand, this exhibition is all about certified organic wine.


An Event for All Wine Lovers

While the main fair is closed to the general public, organizers host an accompanying event for all wine lovers. At “Vinitaly and the City“, you get to taste over 200 Italian wines while exploring Verona. For example, you can find displays at Loggia Antica, Piazza dei Signori, Cortile del Mercato Vecchio, and Arsenale di Verona. And if you ever need a breather from all that wine tasting, why not sample some of the regional cheese and salami? We promise it’ll be worth it!

Verona, the Perfect Backdrop for Vinitaly

When in Verona for the Vinitaly 2024, you should make some time to explore the city itself. Famous as the city of Romeo and Juliet, you’ll get a glimpse of Italy’s rich heritage while wandering the city streets. For example, due to Verona’s many well-preserved historical buildings, it has been named a UNESCO “Cultural Heritage of Humanity“.

Tips to Make the Most of Your Vinitaly Experience

If you’ve ever been to a trade fair, you’ll know that it can be quite strenuous. But if you follow a few tips, you’ll be sure to make the most of your visit.

  • Take public transportation: Avoid traffic jams by taking one of the free shuttle buses from Verona-Villafranca International Airport, Verona Central Station or the city centre directly to the venue.
  • Plan your visit: If you know which exhibitions, workshops or tastings you want to attend, your visit will go as smoothly as Italian Olive oil.
  • Wear comfortable clothes: You’ll be walking and talking for hours on end so make sure to choose your outfit wisely.
  • Drink, drink, drink (water, obviously): Even though it might feel like you’re drinking plenty of liquids, wine can be very dehydrating so don’t forget to drink lots and lots of water.
