our yearly pilgrimage at vinitaly

for the past 3 years now we have come to verona, in the veneto, for what is turning into a pilgrimage: the visit of our beloved vinitaly - one of the largest wine fair in the world.

in fact, it was here that the idea of this blog started and it was here that i realised that my passion for wine and food, and for the whole of italy for that matter, was actually much deeper than i thought before.

vinitaly has over 4,300 exhibitors from over 30 countries and i am told over than 100,000 people visit the fair, some from 100 different countries.  it includes not only wine producers, but also showcase on the technology of wine, and there is a pavillion dedicated to the food of italy with a huge display of olive oils from all over the country.
