Ticino: presentation of the 2016 Vintage

Source /
There is much more to Ticino wine than Merlot: Over the years, wine growers have begun to grow new varieties of white and red grapes, which are sparking growing interest among wine lovers. This year, once again, you will have a chance to taste these new wines. Take time to observe, smell and taste them together with their producers. This wine-tasting event will be held, as usual, at Lugano’s Palazzo dei Congressi and will showcase wines from 59 participating wineries, invited by Ticinowine to present the best of their production from 2016.

A warm and sunny September has produced sweet grapes with a good balance and perfect acidity, essential for the production of fine wines. The wine has evolved well over time, living up to expectations.

These new varieties are the highlight of this unique event showcasing Ticino’s wines, with 59 participating wineries and more than 240 wines available for tasting.
