In autumn the format of the Alta Langa Consortium will stop in Rome, Naples and Verona
Alta Langa DOCG: Soul of a Territory is the project that the Alta Langa Consortium has created with the aim of making the wines of the denomination in combination with the true and authentic flavors of the lands known to a carefully selected and qualified public of professionals in the Horeca sector alte di Langa, all seated together around a single table to facilitate the pleasure of conviviality in the discovery of the Alta Langa and its vocation as a "gastronomic wine".
Between the last weeks of May and the first weeks of June, the Consortium gave life to appointments between Turin - with Piermassimo Cirio (Trattoria Madonna della Neve di Cessole, Asti) -, Milan - with Gemma Boeri (Osteria da Gemma di Roddino, Cuneo ) - and Genoa - with Vilma Forneris (La Vecchia Osteria di Castellino Tanaro, Cuneo): more than 60 guests including restaurateurs, wine merchants, sommeliers and specialist journalists attended the meetings to discuss Alta Langa wines, their use in papers, factors of interest, on the modalities of the matching proposal . These are the winning ingredients of the format, which has been very successful: therefore the Consortium has decided to relaunch.
“The tour of Alta Langa DOCG: Soul of a Territory will continue in the autumn with three new stages between Rome, Naples and Verona - explains the president of the Consortium, Mariacristina Castelletta -. It is an unprecedented format that has met with great appreciation: we are all together around a single table to deepen our knowledge of our denomination through the tasting, guided by a professional sommelier, of five wines that represent the different types envisaged by our specification. Thus we discover the surprising versatility of pairings and the great vocation of gastronomic wine to be enjoyed from starters until the end of the meal. I am proud and grateful that there is an increasingly large public interested in the Alte Bollicine Piedmontese, so special and unique" .
The director of the Alta Langa Consortium, Paolo Rossino , comments: “With Alta Langa DOCG: Soul of a Territory, the Consortium promotes Alta Langa wines and at the same time promotes the territory of origin, adopting wide-ranging actions that make it possible to make the authenticity and beauty of the Alta Langa through the gastronomic key: involving in this journey the historic taverns of the high lands, essence and presidium of the territory, is a great honor for us, and the appreciation that the guests of the first three appointments reserved for the proposal demonstrates that it is the right path to follow ”.
