Merano WineFestival is the first event in Europe which, since 1992, is solely focused on the selection of top quality products. The quality selection of top-of-the-line products characterizing the event appears even more special thanks to some beautiful and truly elegant locations, such as the magnificent Kurhaus of Merano.

The Merano WineFestival is more than just an event, it’s also a sort of "think tank". It provides a platform for exchange between producers, opinion leaders, professionals and consumers. A proper benchmark for high quality productions and a reference for the most selective buyers.
The visibility and notoriety of the Merano WineFestival reaches a global level and represents a brand of top-quality. Every selected company represents the "crème de la crème" of the wine world.

To celebrate 26 years of history, there will be 5 days full of emotions and things to discover with old and new friends: over 450 winemakers among the best of Italy and the whole world, almost 200 producers of culinary specialities, 15 prominent chefs. The "Merano Wine & Culinaria Award" will select the best Italian produtions presented during the festival.

FYI: during the festival, different events will take place: you can choose the tickets for the day(s) and events/locations which you like the most. Here are a few more details that can help you when choosing your ticket:

- bio&dynamica: this section is focused on natural, biological and biodynamic products, in particular wine. There, you'll meet over 100 producers of biological wines.

- cooking farm: a fusion between show cooking and talk show, a bland between traditional styles and contemporary innovation. There will be many different cooking farms during the festival, we recommend to check out the program day per day

- gourmetarena: the main focus lies here on high quality culinary products. It is a collection of national and international products displaying typical traits of their respective area of origin. It's organised into four major parts: "Le Eccelenze della Culinaria", "BeerPassion", "Consortium-Territorium" and "Rue des Chefs".

- catwalk champagne: more than 200 different Champagnes by 80 different producers create a crucible of culture, tastings, pleasure, liberty and the shared experience of emotions.
