Sicilia en primeur


WHAT SICILIA EN PRIMEUR IS
Sicilia en Primeur, created in 2004, is an annual event intended to promote and present to the Italian and international press both the latest vintages and those already on the market from the wineries belonging to Assovini Sicilia; it is also an itinerant event aimed at valorizing Sicily’s various winemaking districts and their excellent wine & food products.

The originality and uniqueness of the event lies in offering its guests a many-sided approach to Sicilian wine, starting from a “broad-range” tasting of a representative selection of en primeur (early) wines and others beginning to fully express their personalities. Also integral to the event are tours of the various wine districts – from Monreale to Marsala, the Belice Valley to the Agrigento area, the Madonie mountains, Ragusa and the Val di Noto – as well as discussions led by producers and journalists and educational sessions. An ensemble of approaches making it easier to read a complex panorama of excellent winemakers interpreting Italy’s largest viticultural region.


Sicilia En Primeur 2014
As the stage for the 11th edition of the now-classic Sicilia en Primeur wine-tasting event, Assovini Sicilia has selected a sublime venue, the Aeolian Isles, and more precisely, the island of Vulcano. Here the approximately 40 participating Sicilian wine producers will be introducing their wines to a select group of over 70 journalists hailing from every corner of the globe. This grand tasting is Assovini Sicilia’s premier annual communications endeavour, and results have fully testified to its importance and success, with the publication in 2012 of 158 articles in daily newspapers, magazines, and blogs, which increased to 190 in 2013. As in thepast, communication has been entrusted to Thurner PR, an agency specializing in promotion and communications, active for over 15 years in Europe and across the globe in the oenogastronomy sector.
Sicilia en Primeur 2014, reserved exclusively for invited journalist, will take place on 28 and 29 May 2014.
