Vinitaly: Giovanni Corino

IMG_9827

It may not be a surprise that I spent my time at Vinitaly in the Piemonte section. Many of my friends were there presenting their wines, including of course Giovanni Corino. Their labels were recently “updated” and as you can see they were on display at the fair. As I have tasted all their wines many times before, my stop there was mostly to say hello.

Also displayed at the fair was their new brochure. A beautiful collection of photos and of course information about their wines! You can read more about their winery here.

Winery Wednesday

Maybe you didn’t know, but Revello Fratelli split in two and there is now also Carlo Revello & Figli. It’s a relatively new winery, however Carlo has 30 years experience since he worked with his brother at Fratelli Revello before embarking on this new adventure.

As you can see, the label is inspired by Carlo and his beard, and it’s one of the more artsy labels I have seen. I myself have actually never been to the winery since it opened, but will probably make my way over there soon. In the meantime you can read more about the winery on their website.

Vinitaly 2017

Ok. I am not sure where to start. This may be the most insane wine event I have ever attended. There is just miles and miles of wine. I spent 5 hours there and I didn’t even get to see all the wineries in the Piemonte hall that I wanted to see. For the first 30 minutes I just wandered around, trying to get a lay of the land. If I go another time I will definitely do some more research and plan ahead. I would also like to stay more then 1 day, as 1 day is definitely not enough. Below are a few (of the many) pictures I snapped of the day.
