ENOFORUM ITALIA 2021: new records for a wine conference

The 2021 edition of ENOFORUM Italia took place on May 18-19-20 in virtual form, due to the continuing restrictions of the COVID emergency.

Despite the lack of in-person comparative tastings and interviews with company experts in a live exhibition area, this virtual conference concentrated all organizational attention on the presentation element of the event, which was particularly rich in quality content.

The most significant record of Enoforum Italia 2021 pertains to the amount of new knowledge made available to technicians: 65 speakers took to the virtual stage. Over a third of the presenters hailed from outside of Italy: from France, Australia, Spain, Chile, Brazil. Forty scientific reports were given by public researchers, and 25 by experts from leading supplier companies who detailed the more operational aspects of the innovations.

The Enoforum Italia program included 20 papers selected by the Enoforum Contest international scientific committee of 86 members, containing research results considered the most innovative and most responsive to the needs of the production world.

Enoforum Italia 2021 was organized by VINIDEA and SIVE, with the patronage of OIV, MIPAAFT, the Veneto Region and ODAF of Milan, and with the collaboration of Oenoppia, SIMEI-UIV and Assoenologi. Several leading companies in the sector (AB Biotek, CHR Hansen, Dal Cin, Enartis, Enologica Vason, Ever, HTS Enologia, I-Oak, ISVEA, Laffort, Lallemand, Oenobrands, Oenofrance, Perdomini IOC, UIV, VCR) have contributed quality to the conference program and supported it financially.
