Veneto, a great diversity of spirits
Veneto is today one of the most developed and industrialized regions in Italy. With one of the richest historical, natural, artistic, cultural, musical and culinary heritages in the country, it is also the most visited region in Italy, with approximately 60 million tourists each year.
Bordered on the west by Lake Garda, on the north by the Dolomite mountains and on the east by the Adriatic Sea, Veneto is one of the most important wine regions in Italy in terms of production and has a multitude of D.O.C.’s. The incredible success of prosecco but also unique production techniques for red wines (amarones, ripassos, ….) explain this. No wonder Veneto has also become an epicenter of Grappa production. The Veneto region is also the territory of the Aperitivo. It was the birthplace of the spritz. But not only!
As the 2023 edition of Spirits Selection takes place in September in the city of Treviso, Spirits Selection, through a new Editorial Board, aims to answer the many questions consumers may have about the diversity of spirits produced in this region. Over the months, the Editorial Board will build up an archive of in-depth, varied and up-to-date information to feed publications and social networks on Italian spirits production.
An editorial board composed of professionals
The initiative highlights the fact that Spirits Selection is more than just a competition between producers and appellations. It is primarily aimed at fostering dialogue and creating a meeting point for industry specialists.
