Barolo & Friends Event is a format of Consorzio dei Vini del Piemonte based on the link between wine and territory, which brings wineries from Piemonte in some of the main European cities, considered strategic for the Piedmontese wine market, to showcase Barolo and other excellent wines from Piedmont through professional trade workshops, tastings open to the public and in-depth master classes led by highly experienced story tellers. During last years the Barolo & Friends Event took place in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Zurich, Geneva, Bern, Basel, Morges, Brussels, Warsaw, Oslo, Trondheim, Bergen, Helsinki, Tallinn, Hamburg and Berlin.
