Enolia, discovering quality olive oil and local products, now in its eighteenth edition, will be held on April 22 and 23. Enolia this year will be dedicated, in addition to its original character, to the quality of olive oil produced in Italy and many agricultural products, but will also present great news: The Wine Village organized in collaboration with La Fonderia – Una Scelta di Campo di Simona Palumbo.
The external area of Palazzo Mediceo will host the wine companies, in a market fair, which will expose their products and offer direct sale. Great attention will be paid to quality, organic and local wine. The Village, sort of a pleasure space, will also include a stage for cooking shows sponsored by some wineries. The cooking shows will be directed by the wine journalist Marco Bellentani.
Inside Palazzo Mediceo a tasting of olive oils coming from different parts of Italy is possible and mini-courses to learn more about olive oil are held. The event also provides a major section dedicated to typical Italian products: in the Medici area, hub of the event, you will have the chance to try many products from different Italian regions.
