At Villa Favorita, from Saturday, 5th to Monday, 7th April in Sarego (VI), VinNatur launches a new initiative:
the creation of a network of supporting members of the association to promote healthy wine.
VILLA FAVORITA, the Natural Wines Fair organised by VinNatur Natural Wine-growers Association, set to open on SATURDAY, 5th April and continue until MONDAY, 7th APRIL at Villa La Favorita (Monticello di Fara, Sarego VI, via Favorita 6) is the perfect opportunity to launch a new initiative insisted upon by Angiolino Maule and his wine-producing colleagues:the NATURAL WINE NETWORK..
An actual NETWORK of contacts has been established; they will meet within a platform created on the vinnatur.org website to communicate with each other, exchange information and news on wines offered by member wine-growers, on points of sale where wine can be purchased or where to find a particular vintage that they have been pursuing for years.The network will become a hotline between the producer, the salesman, and the end consumer, who will be able to obtain in real time all the information necessary to fill a chalice up with the natural wines he loves.
To join the network just visit the site WWW.VINNATUR.ORG in the SUPPORTERS section, register in a category, and contribute to the association activities with an annual membership fee of 50 euro.Registration as a supporting member can be obtained by any physical person, organisation or company that intends to economically sustain the activities promoted by VinNatur – http://www.vinnatur.org/en/sostenitori/
