Vinitaly in Verona is the world's largest wine fair, made up of many buildings referred to as "pads", with the bigger wine regions having their own building like Sicily(above photo).
Living in Piedmont we tried to spend as much time as possible in other regions tasting different wine.
High on our list of other regions was Franciacorta, tasting and finding new bubbles.
Our friend Ornella joined us in our hunt for new bubbles.
Inside and out, the media was everywhere, taking photos and shooting videos.
Vinitaly is not just for wine buyers, it is also for the winemakers looking for new equipment for making wine.
Here is a booth selling corks.
Plastic harvest tubs and everything else you could imagine is there on display.
Most winemakers need barrels, pick your forest, size and toast.
After having gone to Puglia this spring, we didn't feel too bad about not having enough time to taste some Puglia wines.
