Bellavita Expo London 2018 will showcase a range of Italian wines – including old classics, lesser known bottles and innovative grape varieties – especially selected for the UK market. Joining a variety of talks and panel will be five Italian wine producers that have made history in Italy and beyond: Villa Sandi, Frescobaldi, Allegrini, Fontanafredda and Feudi di San Gregorio. We will host the founders of these five wine houses in an insightful panel discussion on how Italian wine has developed throughout the years and how it will continue to evolve in the future.
