A day to have a glass of Collio DOC wine, a project stablished by the Collio Wine Consortium and Slow Food Italy to promote a great appellation that turned a small piece of land in Gorizia province into a well-known appreciated area thanks to its great white wines.

In the places member of Slow Food, producers from Collio will propose tasting their labels: autochthonous Friulano, Ribolla Gialla and Malvasia and also international varieties as Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay, but not only. Wines will be paired to Friuli specialties to create a 360° savoury event.
