The event is open to wineries in the Apulian region, to those who commit to Due Mari WineFest and will be organized as follows.
The now well-known team will be headed by Attilio Sinza Competition “Due Mari WineFest 2023”During which he will decide, in the presence of a mixed jury, made up of the staff of the AIS – the delegation of Taranto and the non-technical staff, the three best red, white and rosé wines among those he has tasted. The awards ceremony will take place during the event in Moon Reve.
At noon on June 13, at 17.00, the organization and the companies that have joined the initiative will accompany Attilio Senza on a tour to discover Taranto from the sea on boats of the Junian Dolphin Reserve.
However, at 7.00 pm Scienza will hold a conference titled “Myth and DNA in the Origin of Canelian Vineyards”. Speaking with him will be Pierpaolo Sirch, Production Manager at Feudi San Gregorio and Co-Founder of Simonit and Sirch, and Nicola Bello, CEO of Offwine and a consultant who specializes in wine science.
