After the cancellation of “Grandi Langhe on the road”, the format that should have brought the great wines of the Langhe around the most important squares in Italy, first postponed to April and then canceled due to the restrictive measures in force in spring, “Grandi Langhe”, an event dedicated to Italian and foreign buyers, distributors, wine merchants and restaurateurs, is back in attendance, in its usual format, but in Turin, on 31 January and 1 February 2022, with 200 wineries from Langhe and Roero, which will present the labels in the spaces of OGR Torino, hub of innovation, food and wine and contemporary culture of the Piedmontese capital, a strategic choice oriented to the desire to further increase the event that, for years, has opened the appointments of the Italian wine calendar. The two days, dedicated to the Langhe and Roero Docg and Doc, will therefore be the first opportunity of the year to taste the new vintages of Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero and other denominations of the territory.
“We have decided to change location for”Great Langhe “ first of all to allow compliance with the legislation on distancing, and, secondly, to give an important signal that reflects the growth that the event has had in recent editions, and that of our denominations which, at the beginning of October, recorded a + 15% on the first 9 months of 2020 “, explains Matteo Ascheri, president of the Consortium for the Protection of Barolo and Barbaresco. “We are very satisfied that the collaboration between Consorzio del Barolo, Barbaresco, Alba, Langhe and Dogliani and Consorzio del Roero is constantly growing and the next edition of”Great Langhe ” will be the confirmation “, declares the president of the Roero Protection Consortium, Francesco Monchiero. “In recent years, the influx of operators has constantly increased and the choice to bring the event to Turin in OGR Torino is precisely due to the desire to respond to the need to welcome a greater number of people interested in learning more about the wines of the Langhe “. “OGR Torino is a modern, central and prestigious place, which will host over 200 local wineries that will participate in”Great Langhe “ and will have the opportunity to meet sector operators “, adds Andrea Ferrero, director of the Consortium for the Protection of Barolo and Barbaresco.
