12-13 MAY 2018: NIZZA MONFERRATO turns BARBERA red
During Nizza è Barbera, the town of Nizza Monferrato becomes a great wine capital, where visitors can taste NIZZA D.O.C.G. and all the other Barbera D.O.C.G. and D.O.C. wines from Piedmont, face to face with the people who make them!
Meet over 50 producers of the finest Barbera d’Asti at the Foro Boario in Nizza Monferrato: over 250 labels presented for tasting, included in the price of admission, served and explained directly by the winemakers. The Barbera Forum is the heart of Nizza è Barbera!
Take part in the special tastings of Nizza è Barbera, organised by Enoteca Regionale di Nizza Monferrato: an in-depth look at the appellation with experts in the sector, held in the technical tasting room in the splendid Palazzo Crova. Places are limited so book your moment of wine culture now!
THERE’S A PARTY IN TOWN
Spend a pleasant evening in Nizza Monferrato old town! The shops will be open and visitors can enjoy a range of local dishes and specialities as they stroll around town or sit comfortably in specially organised areas. Then there’s the Wine BARbera – where over 100 different labels of Barbera d’Asti will be available for tasting, served by Sommeliers from the AIS and the streets will be filled with music and a party atmosphere. There’ll also be a chance to taste specialities prepared specially to celebrate our favourite red: have you ever tried Barbera ice-cream?
On Sunday the party continues, with the market and activities for children. Download the detailed programme of Nizza è Barbera 2018!
THE HOME OF BARBERA
At Palazzo Crova, the historical building surrounded by splendid gardens that is home of the Enoteca Regionale di Nizza, you can visit the Wine Shop and purchase the wines of our associate producers – as well as the Museo del Gusto, both of which will be open on the Saturday evening during Nizza è Barbera. You can also enjoy a delicious menu created to pair perfectly with Barbera d’Asti: lunch and dinner will both be served at the table, with the Barbera wines of our Producers available at the tasting tables, in the peaceful setting of the Ristorante Vineria la Signora in Rosso (lunch in the gardens and dinner in the indoor dining room).
