Gourmet’s International in Meran and the president Helmuth Köcher have recognised that it would be beneficial to combine all the events that take place before the internationally recognised Merano International WineFestival & Culinaria with this event, and present them under a single name.
Merano WineFestival & Gourmet takes over the leadership for all events during the year.
The name “Anteprima” defines the events that take place before
November, while the names “GourmetHotel – Chef&Food – Fine Wine”
only apply to events during the first week in November.
• The stages of the Eurotour take
place in the first few months of the year and finish in July and
present top quality Italian wines and culinary produce abroad.
• The Exclusive Presentation takes place in Italy in September and October as a preview of the November programme in Meran.
“GourmetHotel – Chef&Food – Fine Wine” from 31.10. to 09.11.2009 contains:
o 18th Merano International WineFestival: elite quality wines – exclusive meeting point for wine lovers
