New to Northern Lands in 2017 is the presentation of a feature country, Italy, through a partnership with Vinitaly. Vinitaly is the world’s largest wine show attracting 130,000 visitors from 140 countries each year to Verona. It is the quintessential showcase for the Italian wine industry. Vinitaly Canada – Edmonton (May 2-3, 2017) will be entirely dedicated to Italian wine and spirits (Italian-Canadian comparative and collaborative tastings and dinners will be held on May 4 and the all-Canadian events will take place on May 5-6). During the two days, Vinitaly Canada – Edmonton will boast a rich and engaging program that will include trade and consumer walk-a-bout tastings and producer dinners and events.

There will also be a number of educational tastings, seminars and masterclasses for trade and consumers explaining and broadcasting the great diversity of Italian wine grape varieties and wines led by Dr. Ian D’Agata (Vinitaly’s Scientific Director and the world’s foremost authority on Italian wines) and a number of international wine journalists and experts.
