Wines of Puglia come to Texas thanks to Movimento Turismo del Vino Puglia and its project “Around the world with Wines of Puglia”, aiming to promote Puglia wines above Extra-EU markets via OCM 2018/19 funding program. Wines of Movimento will be featured at Ian D’Agata’s Indigena World Tour event in Austin, which will be held on June 6th at Fareground (111, Congress Ave.), from 8.30 a.m. to 15.30 p.m. An unmissable opportunity to let Puglia winemakers be known in US and particularly in Texas, one of the States in the Heavy Buyers List, thanks to its annual growth in wine consumption.
Indigena, as the name suggests, was conceived by Ian D’Agata as a specific project aimed at increasing and broadcasting knowledge about Italy’s many native grapes and wines. An educational project articulated in high specific masterclasses about the great varieties of Italian indigenous grapes and denominations, where wines on tasting are selected especially for their nativeness and presented to local high profile buyers and insiders. Particularly, Indigena US events are curated by Ian D’Agata and Jeff Porter, ex Indigena US Director USA and Special Events Wine Director in all restaurants of Bastianich Group. After the big success of New York and San Francisco in 2018, Indigena World Tour is going to expande its range in US during 2019.
A day fully dedicate to Puglia native grape varieties, with four masterclasses: “Whites and Rosés: Bombino Nero, Nero di Troia, Negroamaro and Primitivo”; “Nero di Troia from Castel del Monte and Daunia”; “The Great Salento wines from Negroamaro Doc”; and “The great Wines from Primitivo doc”.
Indigena event in Austin will be held next June 6th at Fareground, the new location dedicated to food & wine recently inaugurated in the heart of the city. A multifunctional place, where culinary meets community, work meet play, Fareground already is the new palce to be in the city for food & beverage insiders and passionates.
The project “Around the world with Wines of Puglia” by Movimento Turismo del Vino Puglia is a campaign financed according to EU Reg. N.1308/2013.
