Wine – The Official Selection is the result of a year-long process of tasting and assessment. The wines included in this category – both Italian and non-Italian – were selected by special tasting panels throughout the country and were recipients of one of the prestigious Wine Hunter Awards (Red, Gold or Platinum).
All the wines in the Official Selection are high quality products and, as winners of the Wine Hunter Awards, have earned the right to a place at the Merano Wine Festival: an important showcase that presents consumers with the best of national and international wine production.
Wineries from all over Italy present their labels that are rewarded with The WineHunter Award.
This area is about wine labels that have been cultivated and produced under extreme conditions.
The Monday of the Festival is dedicated to the New Entries: those wines which, thanks to special quality and peculiarity, stood out during the tastings and have never before been selected for the Merano WineFestival. You find these labels in the Pavillon des Fleurs of the Kurhaus.
