At Simei-Enovitis the SensoryBars for the tasting of selected wines and oils

Tasting rooms set up for sensory analysis

In Hall 15, it will be possible for visitors to taste not only some of the best Italian wines, but also a selection of the most prestigious labels of Italian oils.

Moreover, here it will be also possible to test one’s own sensory abilities by simulating the experience of a professional laboratory within the tasting rooms set up for the occasion at the SensoryBar.

In the area dedicated to Tergeo, the project of Unione Italiana Vini aimed to improve the sustainability of wineries, there will be another SensoryBar, available for the tasting of an ample list of wines proposed by the wineries taking part in this project.

At the end of each tasting, the participating visitors will express their evaluation by filling in a questionnaire: the collected data will be analyzed and processed by the Sensory Laboratory of Unione Italiana Vini, which will transfer them to the wineries concerned.

Therefore, the project is interesting for the public that is able to taste real top-of-the-range products, as well as for the wineries, which can receive an immediate feedback about their own products, useful for defining strategies of production and market positioning.
