We are now at the third edition of Vinoè, the important wine festival signed FISAR - Federazione Italiana Sommelier Albergatori e Ristoratori - that from Saturday 27 to Monday 29 October 2018 will turn the Stazione Leopolda in Florence into a real event dedicated to wine.

Meeting point for operators and wine lovers, vinoè in a short time has established itself as one of the most important wine events in Italy presenting every year a sophisticated schedule of tastings, meetings, round tables and cooking shows.

Inside the Leopolda, over 8,000 people gather to discover, under the guidance of Fisar Sommeliers, more than 800 labels - including famous wineries and lesser-known, but equally excellent, independent realities - present at 140 tasting counters.

Producers from all over Italy, from Trentino to Sicily participate in the event with a wide representation of Tuscany and its winemaking traditions.

Tenuta Fontana - strongly characterized by the high quality of production of its wines - will attend this important event full of tastings, round tables, cooking shows and awards.

Here is the program of the three days:
