Japan’s most important wine competition, Sakura, saw Italy’s Le Donne del Vino triumph with a total of 52 medals. Sakura comes after Feminalise (Beaune FR), the leading international competition with
900 recipes from the 900 Donne del Vino, with local and traditional dishes, chosen to pair with wines and grape varieties from the same area. The first recipe collection in the world that begins with wine and then progresses to food, teaching people how to make the typical food best suited to accompany the wines of the same region. “Le ricette del vino” is a comprehensive collection of wines and culinary traditions, providing an insight into the heritage of knowledge and flavours that characterise the many “local terroirs” that make up Italy.
