January 30–February 6, 2021 | Virtual

We are thrilled to announce that La Festa del Barolo becomes La Festa del Piemonte in 2021. Although we aren’t able to celebrate the glories of Nebbiolo in person, we will be bringing you a series of fabulous virtual tastings and seminars. For 2021, we are adding several new events, including panel tastings of Barbaresco, Alto Piemonte and more Barolo. Below is a tentative schedule of events. We will be offering a very limited number of tasting kits for our Barolo, Barbaresco and Alto Piemonte seminars through Morrell, our partner retailer for La Festa del Piemonte. Vinous Premium subscribers will have the first opportunity to purchase these kits, each of them selections curated by Antonio Galloni for these tastings. We will also be offering non-wine tickets to all events.
