“As usual we wanted to show to our international and national guests some aspects of Bergamo they didn’t know” said the director of the Competition, the oenologist Sergio Cantoni. “Not many people outside Bergamo know how rich our territory is for what concern castles. The number and variety of historical castles we have here in Bergamo never stop to charm our guests and at Emozioni dal Mondo we love to amaze them. This is why we chose Pagazzano for 2017”.
 
 
The tasting committees of the International Oenological Competition “Emozioni dal Mondo Merlot e Cabernet Insieme” are going to work in the extraordinary location of Corte Berghemina the next 20th October 2017.

The tasting desk will be open to public Saturday 21st October from 3 pm to 7 pm and Sunday 22nd October from 11 am to 7 pm.
