Presentation of the event
4th TigullioVino.it Meeting
Where wine, people and the web meet
Monday 16 June 2008
Palazzo Ducale, Genova, Italy
With the support of:
Regione Liguria, Provincia di Genova, Comune di Genova
Terroir Vino was created by the press office of TigullioVino.it. This
wine portal, created in April 2000, has become the reference for wine
and food information on the Web in Italy. The project consists in presenting
to the trade press, professionals and to our readers, a top selection
of winemakers and wines resulting from the choices made over the last
few years by our panel of tasters. In particular, among all the wines
tasted, this selection rewards winemakers and wines that, beyond their
high quality level and excellent quality-price ratio, have also managed
to impart a strong emotion, and the respect of their grape varieties or
their terroir. In other words not necessarily or not only "trendy wines"
or "top flight wines", but rather wines that deserve attention for their
quality, originality and ease of drinking.
After the success of the first three Meetings, which took place in some
of the most beautiful locations of the Riviera, with this Fourth edition
we are taking a gamble. The meeting is moving to the Palazzo Ducale, the
Ducal Palace, one of the most prestigious historical buildings in Genova,
which will probably become the permanent site of our event. Our motto,
"where wine, people and the web meet", underscores the need to stimulate
communication and feedback between winemakers, professionals, consumers
and independent media ; this year we added the title, terroir vino, in
an effort to bring about a common ground for dialogue and exchanges between
The wineries that we invite to participate in this event are part of what
we call our quality circle, and represent the best wines tasted by our
panel. New exhibitors get added to the quality circle every year, but
our panel also verifies the continued eligibility of companies that have
participated in previous editions.
Wineries that are reconfirmed receive, each year, the Winery Prize for
constant quality, while new wineries are given awards for wines that qualified
either for absolute quality or quality-price ratio.
