Ten drinks inspired to famous movies by VII Hills Gin: trendy cocktails from the best Italian mixologists. After the great success of the previous article (HERE) on the movie-themed cocktails based on Rum Don Papa, here is a new episode of what we could jokingly (but not so much) define a real “Saga”, since we are already at work to offer you more new episodes. This time our expert Carlo Dutto offers us ten “titles” based on VII Hills Gin. We therefore immediately give him the word for the presentation and the recipes. Italian Gin, […]
Top food and wine, for the VIII Edition of Excellence – Food Innovation at the Rome Convention Center – La Nuvola. A not to miss event, has been Excellence, which proposed a remarkable series of events, coocking shows, talks and tastings at the highest levels for three days (Nov. 9th to 11th), to a very numerous public. We went there on the final day (Monday), when fortunately for us, the “great wave” of visitors had already passed and we were able to calmly taste numerous wines and also various EVO oils, cheeses and scold […]
New appointment, at the City of the Other Economy, with the Natural, Organic and Biodynamic Wines of the VAN – Natural Craftsmen Winegrowers. After the previous edition in March (we talked about it HERE), again gathered in Rome dozens of Natural Craftsmen Winegrowers (Vignaioli Artigiani Naturali) to present their productions to the general public. An audience that responded with great enthusiasm, such as to make our work difficult. In these cases it becomes quite difficult even to approach the tasting counters, if not after a long wait, and the dialogue with the producers is just as difficult. […]
Altrovino presented the second edition of Era Uva in Rome: a selection of excellent Organic, Biodynamic and Natural wines. In the beautiful setting of the Villa Torlonia’s Limonaia another event was held recently (October – 28th) entirely dedicated to the presentation of selected companies producing organic, biodynamic and natural wines. A further demonstration, in case there was still need for it (check our video below), of the interest generated among the public by these types of wines. But not only that, it also indicates the constant increase in the number of companies that have decided to dedicate themselves […]
Ten “Cinematographic” drinks inspired by Don Papa Rum: trendy cocktails, created by the best Italian mixologists. Our friend Carlo Dutto proposes another unmissable cocktail collection, this time all based on Don Papa Rum, and all inspired by the world of Cinema. Famous movies (with some forays even among the best television series of our time) that have somehow suggested to and to the best Italian bartenders of trendy drinks, who remember and evoke the stories, the atmospheres and the places of the films to which they are dedicated. But, let’s immediately pass the word to Carlo, who will talk […]
The wines of Friuli Venezia Giulia tasting at the Hotel Savoy in Rome, in the event organized by Go Wine. This time, Go Wine has decided to dedicate an event entirely (with a single, but significant exception) to the wines of one of the most significant regions in the field of Italian viticulture. In F.V.G. in fact, great wines have always been produced that stand as a significant point of reference, especially with the many white ones, for the most demanding enthusiasts. Suffice it to mention Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio or Ribolla Gialla for whites, but also […]
Proposta Vini and Agenzia Enotria have given life to an event that took place in the evocative setting of the New Villa dei Cesari. An interesting philosophy, that of Proposed Wines, which for almost thirty years has distributed, among others, the “Extreme Wines” and the “Wines of the Small Islands“. A particular attention therefore, to the small realities and to those who practice a “difficult” viticulture, given the orographic and/or climatic characteristics of their terroirs. Productions often limited in numbers, but certainly not in quality, as any winelover certainly already knows. Sometimes, real masterpieces that arise from the […]
Meregalli Group, with the “100 Wines & 100 Spirits” event presented the prestigious catalog of products distributed by the brand to the sector’s experts. The numbers of this event that took place in Rome, last September 30th, in the always fascinating location of the Salone delle Fontane – Eur, are in fact impressive: ACCREDITED PEOPLE 1622 PRESENTED WINES LABELS 302 UNPROTED WINE BOTTLES 1912 SPIRITS LABELS PRESENTED 179 UNSOLD SPIRITS BOTTLES 374 TASTING TABLES 83 MASTECLASS 4 TASTING HOURS 8 Check the video we made to get an idea of all this. NOTE: We apologize […]
The Rose Drinking Festival – Rosa Rosati Rosè in Rome with the homonymous Guide and the Zosimo Wine Selection, at the Hotel Barcelò Aran Mantegna. Another event dedicated to Italian Rosé wines, demonstrating the recent increased interest in this category, also here in Italy. In fact, we’ve been right last year when we too decided to dedicate a Special issue to these wines too (HERE) We are in fact convinced that the varietal richness of our vines is able to offer high quality products, perfectly able to compete with those of other countries […]
Great success for the Roma Bar Show: the first international event held in Italy, entirely dedicated to the beverage & mixology world. A very large public has awarded, on September 23th & 24th, the Roma Bar Show. An international event that saw the participation of hundreds of companies in the beverage, mixology and even food sectors. A few numbers are enough to give an idea of the scope of the event: – 9628 presences – 28 tasting room – 8 Academy Lab – 10 Main Seminars – The largest Mixology seminar (with Marian Beke) ever done with over 800 […]
With “Good … I didn’t know it!” after the summer break, the Go Wine appointments start again at the Savoy Hotel in Rome. This time the event ( Buono… non lo conoscevo! ) focuses on the richness of the Italian vineyard, made up of many realities linked by history and culture to different territories.
Six trendy recipes from the Rome Bar Show, previewed for iBESTmag. For the upcoming event dedicated to the world of Beverage & Mixology, we took the opportunity to give you a few “gems” in preview among those you will find on September 23/24 at Palazzo dei Congressi in Rome. Thanks to my friend Carlo Dutto (an expert in the field, who has already provided us with great success, some cocktail recipes for the past summer), we have the possibility to offer you six tasty drinks, among those that companies and mixologists present will propose to the public during […]
White, Rosé and Sparkling Wines of Lazio. During this hot summer, food and wine events are multiplying. In all of Italy there is no day (or rather evening) that cannot be found in one’s own city, or in vacation places an event that has food and good drinking as its theme. Opportunities to spend some time during the holidays, to go out at night when it is cooler, but also opportunities to always learn about new production realities, find those already known and deepen their knowledge.
Great Muscat wines on the rooftop at Savoy Hotel. In its many varieties, one of the most widespread and appreciated vines in Italy. The Moscato is in fact cultivated from the Valle d’Aosta to Sicily and offers countless wines with a great smell and sweet taste (although there are numerous varieties of dry muscat) excellent with desserts and some cheeses, or even as pleasant meditation wines.
Wine and food tour in Tuscany. Pecorino cheese, Cinta Senese cured meats, Chianina, organic and biodynamic wines, hospitality. This time, we wanted to make our “browsable special” even more “special” and so, we organized a Tour in Tuscany, in search of … Treasures. (From the Editorial) Treasures of Tuscany is a travel suggestion, an arbitrary itinerary, with no apparent logical connection. At least this is what it may seem, because we have achieved it not so much for specific places or areas, nor even by following history and/or art, which have so much to do when it […]
Eight cool recipes for this hot 2019, proposed by the best mixologists. Summer, we all know, is the time of year when we spend more time outside the home: we travel, we take part in parties, we meet friends, we relax on sunny beaches and above all, we drink a lot of more. Both to quench their thirst, but also, dragged by the atmosphere and the events of the season.
The best Italian Rosè wines in the event organized by Cucina & Vini. In the splendid setting of Palazzo Brancaccio in Rome, the eighth edition of BereRosa was staged: an event organized by the magazine Cucina & Vini to disseminate and enhance the production of Italian rosè wines.
An evening at Savoy Hotel, dedicated to the king of Piedmontese vines, in its various forms: Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Also in 2019, last May 21th, in Rome, Go Wine offered us the opportunity to taste the products of numerous – about 30 – Nebbiolo based wine cellars. An opportunity particularly appreciated by those who, like us, love this type of wines. It’s, of course, just a “cross-section” of the immense and variegated Piedmontese production, which counts hundreds and hundreds of companies devoted to the cultivation and preservation of these grapes which, luckily for us, give such extraordinary results.
Great wines from Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. Organized by Carlo Zucchetti – Il Giornale Enogastronomico con il Cappello, an interesting event dedicated to the production of wine (and olive oil) in a very specific area – the Tuscia – located between the northern Lazio, the Umbria and Tuscany, was held on May 5th in Rome.
Taste a History: an event dedicated to Lazio winemakers belonging to the Italian Federation of Independent Winegrowers at the WeGil in Rome. The institutional purpose of the F.I.V.I. is to bring together the producers to represent them and promote the quality and authenticity of Italian wines, both in relations with institutions and the general public. The association also fulfills its tasks with events such as the one held in Rome on March 31 last: “Taste a History”, at the WeGil exhibition space, this time mainly dedicated to the promotion of Lazio wines. Some “guests” from other regions were […]
Natural, Biological and Biodynamic Wines on show in Rome, at the City of the Other Economy. Another event dedicated to Natural, Organic and Biodynamic wines. The V.A.N fair (Vignaioli Artigiani Naturali) was held in Rome last March 9/10th at the Città dell’Altra Economia. Over forty producers that adhere to the “Chart of Intents” established by the Association, presented the product of their daily efforts in this two days, rewarded by a remarkable public success.
An evening at the Hotel Savoy – Rome, dedicated to the presentation and promotion of selected wines from the Guide published by the Association. Another interesting initiative, the one promoted by Go Wine (we already talked about it HERE) at the Savoy Hotel on March 5th, where some of the wineries included in their Guide “Cantine d’Italia” (Italian Wineries) were presented. A particularly welcome opportunity to always taste new wines that we did not miss.
A Successful Event dedicated to all the Whiskey of the world. Over two thousand labels, dozens of master classes and seminars, different thematic areas and of course, thousands of visitors. All this was the Rome Whisky (or Whiskey) Festival – VIII Edition, which took place on March 2/3rd in Rome, as usual at the Salone delle Fontane – EUR.
An Extensive Choice of Natural Wines in Tasting at Officine Farneto. A winemaking that respects the environment and health, but always of high quality, can only be welcomed. The wines produced by the winemakers belonging to the Vinnatur association are a clear example of this. And we have had proof during the event held in Rome last Feb. 23/24th , which proposed more than 90 wineyards to the attention of fans of good drinking.
In Rome, the annual event that presented the 2019 production of the most important Italian wineries. Also this year Luca Maroni has realized his event dedicated to Italian wines in the fascinating location of the Hall of Fountains in the EUR. Four evenings (Feb 14th – 17th) dedicated mainly to the tasting of over 700 labels proposed by 140 manufacturers.
Romanée – Conti: The Desire goes to auction. There are names that resonate in the collective imagination as unattainable myths, whose existence is fabled but you are not really sure if it is truth or fantasy. The elements that make up the myth are told, but most people will never have the opportunity to verify it in person, let alone possess them, n case of real objects or material goods.
Interview with Pino Perrone. Around the event “A tutta Torba”, (3rd edition), dedicated to peaty whisky with a focus on Bowmore, we decided to offer our readers a nice interview with Pino Perrone, well-known expert in the field and Whisky Consultant of the Rome Whisky Festival by Spirit of Scotland.

Flûte Bar & Lounge by Herve Rousseau. Since 1997, if you want to taste an excellent Champagne in New York, the Flûte Bar & Lounge by Herve Rousseau is the ideal meeting point in Midtown – Manhattan. In fact, near the Carnegie Hall and Central Park, Herve decided to open its first Flute Bar, in an already famous place since the days of Prohibition.
