There are the great wine producers, those who can count on hundreds when not thousands of hectares. And then there are the others, the small winemakers, who produce “handmade” wines and work hard to find their place in an increasingly competitive market. The wine festival NOT is dedicated to them. It will take place from tomorrow to Monday 14 at the Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa, bringing together more than one hundred producers and more than 500 wines.
Il nome fa riferimento a quello che è lo slogan della manifestazione: “Do Not Modify, The name refers to the slogan of the event: “Do Not Modify, Do Not Interfere” reflects a precise production philosophy that puts respect for nature and territorial identity in the centre. The many operators involved in these three days will present their experiences to the public, to direct consumers towards a conscious consumption of wine, which is respectful of the environment and the work. To do this, five thematic seminars have been organized, in-depth meetings on biodynamic viticulture, many tasting and meeting banquets, a number of events involving restaurants, pizzerias, galleries and shops, and a great winemakers party tomorrow evening at the Theatre Santa Cecilia (to participate, ickets can be purchased online). NOT is organized by Good Company and Gagliardi Associati, the main sponsor is the Prezzemolo & Vitale supermarket chain, which is very attentive to the enhancement of local areas.
