Excellence and tradition: wood in winemaking


After the barrels fashion we are back to large casks, but consumers are also asking for “no oak”.
Is there a future for wood in wine? And what will that be? Large producers and wine experts of international renown will compete in an unprecedented world symposium at SIMEI, the most important international showcase of technologies for wine production.

The great interviews of Il Corriere Vinicolo
The symposium will be preceded by a debate on the pages of the weekly magazine of the Unione Italiana Vini, Il corriere Vinicolo, where representatives from the most important wineries will be exchanging their views. Wine experts and wine producers will be involved in a debate coordinated by a big name in international wine journalism about how wood is used today in the production of excellent wines, and what the future of aging will be.

I Corriere Vinicolo is the reference magazine for the Italian wine industry. Published by Unione Italiana Vini since 1928 it’s always been a weekly, something that makes it unique in the variegated world of the sector trade press.
During these 90 years of history, Il Corriere Vinicolo has followed the evolution of the Italian wine sector – from being a local reality to becoming a global case – and has enriched its offer with spaces, surveys and specific products targeted at the new requests of the wine industry.
The two most important subjects of the weekly press effort are the Italian and European wine politics and the constant analysis and monitoring of the markets and of the economics – thanks also to the yearly Vino in cifre, the three-month reports on the world trade Wine by Numbers, the special dossiers about the sparkling wines. Il Corriere Vinicolo is well known as primary source of data and sector analysis used by the research insitutes all over the world, and it’s a point of reference for all institutions and producers for the wine politics. Very important tool of information, Il Corriere Vinicolo is begun also a place for discussion and comparison “outside” the newspaper pages, throgh conferences, debates, workshop and meetings that it organizes in the countries and in special events like SIMEI and Enovitis.
