Vinitaly 53° edition

April: Vinitaly time!

Also this year we were host in the iconic Verona setting for the 53rd edition of the fair and we took place in the Tuscan Pavilion in the Chianti Colli Senesi area.

Experts and amateurs, friends and new buyers… The wines of the Il Drago e la Fornace – a collection that include reds, whites, and also a new rosé – have found a great success among the visitors. Everybody confirmed the quality of the already known products (like our Ribollito) and rewarded the new entries of the year (like the Verde Oro Rosso).

To confirm the company’s ability in the field of creativity and communication – already recognized in 2017 with the award “label of the year” for the Giallo Paglia vermentino – today we have reached other two successes.

Il Drago e la Fornace, in fact, took place on the podium of the 23rd edition of the International Packaging Competition, obtaining the Bronze Label in the “quiet white wines” category, with the Traminer bottle. The label was designed by the Valentina Cresti & Associati studio.

Il Drago e la Fornace also won the “Meridiano del Vino 2019” award, a competition organized by Wine Meridian, which saw over 150 participants. This prize rewards the most innovative wine communication and promotion, in particular emphasizing the company’s ability to distinguish itself on the national scene, thanks to its distinctive visual image.

From 2018 we offer a new format to introduce our bottles, that are directly presented in the hands of restaurateurs and shown in combination with specific recipes. The goal is to obtain a wine story made up of the gestures and words of those who match it with the fruit of their work every day. The memory of wine is no longer the image of a label, but it is also associated with a gustatory or olfactory memory.
