Organised by Movimento Turismo del Vino Friuli Venezia Giulia it is open to artists coming from Italy and abroad, exclusively on an individual basis, over 18 years old (who turn 18 in 2018 and above).
Participants will be split into two categories:
Since its first edition, Spirito di Vino has been particularly focussed on young artists, who have always proved very willing to take part in the initiative. Today Movimento Turismo del Vino is still carrying out this project with passion and momentum with the aim of raising awareness, not only among young people but also among wine lovers from all around the world, on the need to drink responsibly.
The first three artists in the rankings of both groups will be awarded a selection of fine wines from Friuli:
