The Consorzio Tutela Vini Colli Berici e Vicenza announces the results of the 2023 harvest and celebrates the longevity of the DOC at the next edition of Gustus.

Wines and Flavors of Vicenza

The Colli Berici e Vicenza DOC is preparing to celebrate its first 50 years at Gustus – Vini e Sapori di Vicenza . The event, scheduled for Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 October at the “Arrigo Pedrollo” Conservatory in Vicenza , will be an unmissable event for wine lovers. Precisely in these days the harvest is coming to an end - in these last days the Garganega grapes are being harvested and it is being completed with cabernet sauvignon and carmenère - which confirms the excellent vintage , with analytical data confirming the exceptional quality of the grapes and a quantity in line with expectations .
The wine-growing members of the DOC managed to overcome the difficulties caused by the high downy mildew pressure and the mild hail phenomena that occurred between mid-July and August. The grapes brought to the cellar are healthy and promise great wines, especially red ones. To optimally manage the different ripening times, the producers were able to plan the harvest in several steps, which guaranteed the highest quality of production.
“The 2023 vintage has a special meaning not only because it is our fiftieth harvest – declares Silvio Dani , president of the Consorzio Tutela Vini Colli Berici e Vicenza –, but also and above all because this year's harvest was a test bed challenging that produced surprising results: an extraordinary and symbolic achievement that testifies to the continuous dedication and passion of our winemakers for the production of high quality wines, as will be seen at Gustus ”.
Gustus – Vini e Sapori di Vicenza is therefore preparing to become the main stage to celebrate the Colli Berici Doc. The director of the Consortium Giovanni Ponchia underlines the exceptional relevance of this edition: “It will be an extraordinary opportunity to celebrate the longevity of the DOC, and we couldn't be happier to do so, also thanks to the masterclass on Saturday which will offer wines from 50 years ago ”.

Thanks to the finger foods of the I Giovani Leoni gastronomic shop in Lonigo and the chefs of Il Camaleonte di Alonte, Gustus will offer a unique gastronomic experience, enriched by jazz entertainment performed by the students of the Conservatory.
