In 1986, some of the most famous Italian winemakers gathered in the Association that they named Gino Veronelli, calling Permanent Seminar to emphasize the cultural characteristics and study. In 1956, Luigi Veronelli was editor of Il Gastronauta and he was the first journalist to travel post-war Italy to recognize and enhance the culture of wine and gastronomical. The Gold Guide-Wines of Veronelli is probably the most important title of all production of Veronelli. Certainly has historically been the first critical review of quality Italian wines, becoming the reference point for all generations – young and old – producers, distributors and consumers of fine Italian wine, the wine that, thanks to Gino has now made great and famous all over the world.
