Vinòforum, the first major food&beverage event to make a comeback after the cancellations caused by Covid-19, will kick off on September 11th in Rome
From September 11th to September 20th the 17th edition of the famous wine and food festival will take place. It will be the first major event dedicated to the food and wine sector to kick off after the forced cancellations caused by the pandemic. It will be hosted in the same location as last year, namely the splendid 12,000 square meters green spaces of the Parco di Tor di Quinto near the Ponte Milvio neighbourhood.
To ensure compliance with the current regulations in place, the organizers have drawn up a safety protocol which will be applied. Thanks to the large outdoor spaces of Vinòforum, the festival will be able to accommodate a large number of people, avoiding crowds and ensuring the observance of interpersonal distances. The turnout will be managed by monitoring the maximum capacity limit at all times. The online ticket booking and sale system will be incentivized, in order to minimize possible queues. Routes will also be established both inside and outside the event and the exhibition spaces will be single, open on three sides and well spaced from each other. Specialized personnel will supervise at all times to ensure compliance with all the rules.
As usual, Vinòforum will host Italy’s top culinary professionals, wine experts and restaurateurs. The festival will showcase 2000 participating wine labels from 610 wineries, presentations by sommeliers, 40 great chefs and more. Another exciting feature is the Temporary Restaurant: 35 of some of the best restaurants in Rome will be presenting 3 samples of their recipes paired with Champagnes (Dom Pérignon, Krug, Veuve Clicquot, Moët & Chandon, Ruinart). From Aroma’s Giuseppe di Iori and Tommaso Pennestri from Trattoria Pennestri to Sushisen’s Yamamoto Eiji and Daniele Roppo from Il Marchese.
And after last year’s success, the Oleoteca – or oil space – dedicated to the best Italian extra virgin olive oils, will make a comeback. For high-end wine producers and niche companies, the Business Lounge, will allow you to meet operators and buyers of the sector in a journey in between business and public relations.
