The annual Italian Anteprime have been postponed again because of Covid. Traditionally they start in January, now the first event is to take place in Tuscany from 19 to 25 March. The programme of the "Anteprima Toscana" has been confirmed in its entirety, Francesco Mazzei, president of the umbrella organisation of the Tuscan wine consortia Avito, told the online magazine WineNews.

The "Grandi Langhe" event, organised by the two consortia Barolo, Barbaresco, Alba, Langhe and Dogliani and Roero, is now scheduled for 4 and 5 April in Turin. "We have seen in the past two years that we can sell our wines even without fairs. I would even say that the fairs need us winemakers more than the other way round. A later date for the event is not the end of the world," said Matteo Ascheri, president of the Barolo consortium, about the two-month postponement.

The Valpolicella consortium, on the other hand, has immediately moved its "Anteprima Amarone" by several months to June 2022. "This was decided unanimously by the consortium in order to ensure a smooth running of the event," an official statement said. The exact dates for the event in Verona will be announced shortly, the programme originally planned for February will be maintained, it said.
