There are 5 categories you can participate in as well as a section dedicated to photographs:

5) Wine or Liqueur

The authors of the most read stories will be awarded an award, and their municipalities will be rewarded in a big meeting in Spring (COVID permitting!).

Why #DiscoverFoodandWine?

  • Because at the table we find a smile and we want to spread joy
  • Because each of our countries hides pearls
  • Because more and more municipalities are recognizing their typical features with Municipal Designations of Origin
  • Because travel is often dedicated to the discovery of a taste experience
  • Because many of our beautiful villages have festivals dedicated to their typical products and their traditional dishes
  • Because our winemakers produce the best wines in the world
  • Because we have 600 oil cultivars and we don’t know them

For these reasons and others that you can imagine, we ask you to never forget your roots but to fly high and create the future with us.
