One day at Vinitaly

Yesterday, Sunday, I went to Vinitaly in Verona for a day of holiday. I know that many of you have read posts and articles about this event, but now I want to report my day, showing you some pictures and to give you an idea of how this exhibition is. There are thousand of people around and some of them are drunk, but the majority is made by experts and wine lovers. This here below is the entry of VeronaFiere and you can notice that there is a lot of life among the pavilions.

Inside the trade fair the exhibition is divided per regions, so you can find wines from all the italian regions, this picture below for example has been made in the Emilia Romagna region. You can see there are a lot of stands, in each one you can taste the wine produced by that winery.

You can't visit every area of Vinitaly, because some producers and distributors decide to allow the entry only by invitation. On the following picture you can see the area dedicated to Montresor, one of the main wine producers of Verona.
