Take 5StarWines & Wine Without Walls for example, the annual blind wine tasting organized by Veronafiere, much like a box of unlabeled wrapped chocolates, the wines will also be covered up, hidden to mask which bottles are being tasted by a selection of international wine experts chosen for their contrasted backgrounds. Each time a wine is tasted, the judges will be unwrapping the scents, flavors and personal stories held within each bottle. Layers of experience culminated in a finished product, spread open for the world to see.
