Conceived and curated by Helmuth Köcher, the Merano WineFestival is the world’s most exclusive wine-event, a celebration and a showcase of the finest Italian and international wines.
Selected producers –the heart and soul of the Festival – are on hand to illustrate their wines to professionals, enthusiasts and journalists, who meet in Merano to transform their passion for wine into a unique experience. The pleasures of the palate are combined with a delight for the eyes, because the Festival is held in the majestic rooms of the Kurhaus, an elegant historical building in the center of town.
The result of the intense work of nine tasting committees, which selected the best wines from over 300 vineries from Italy and more than 120 international winemakers. In addition they chose the best delicatessen from over 100 food stores for the Merano WineFestival.
