Wine So Serious?

General description

"EXPO15: Feeding The Planet" is gonna be in Milan this spring!

And to stay in theme with its topics, we decided to give you guys the chance to study one of the finest products of our beautiful Italia, il vino!

For instance, did you know that in Italy for a wine to be DOC (certified as original) the vineyard can't be watered unless it's dying?
So here's the question: Will our old traditions find the right compromise with the newest technologies??

Would you like to learn more about wine production?
How to smartly use technology to save money and improve the quality of your product?
How to build a winery?

This is the FANTASTIC opportunity to truly feel the intellectual environment that will be in Milan during EXPO, especially in the world of nutrition!

And, of course, you'll get the basic Milan package:
-big hugs
-hand gestures
-a group of friends that can't wait to hang out with you awesome people

It's gonna be the GRAPEst course ever! (....get it? GRAPEst! GRAPE!)
Can't wait to have you guys here =)
