This weekend (22-25 March) there will be in Verona the 49th edition of Vinitaly, the biggest Wine exhibition in Italy and one of the most important world wide. In 2014 it had 4.111 exhibitors and more than 155.000 visitors.
Trinitapoli will be represented by Casaltrinita', the local winery of Trinitapoli that produce all the wine offered on pierluigi.nl. I will personally visit the event, it will be a great occasion to say hi to the staff of Casaltrinita' (always nice to spend time with dear friends) and visit the exhibition taking part to many workshop and wine tasting events.
The production of wine in Trinitapoli is ancient and it is linked mainly to one product of excellence : Nero di Troia. The star of the Casaltrinita' stand will be PADRE the amazing DOC- TAVOLIERE DELLE PUGLIE wine that is getting more and more attention in the last year both in Italy and abroad. Casaltrinita' has been in the forefront in understanding the potential of the Nero di Troia grape taken in purity. Until 10 years ago Nero di troia was mainly used in several DOC wines from Italy in order to make them stronger. Casaltrinita' and other winery of the Nero di Troia Union worked on offering on the market a product of excellence and this grape taken in purity and refined in barriques offers a product worth its ancient name and tradition.
Casaltrinita' anyway it is not only Nero di Troia. Its wine GRECO-IGP PUGLIA has been awarded during the Winitaly 2011 with the "Gran Menzione" (Great mention) in the list of the best wine of the edition.

I will post a report of the event with pictures once i'm back;) Keep yuo posted.
