The Appia Antica Park will be the suggestive backdrop to the ninth edition of Bererosa, one of the most awaited events of the Roman summer. This year the great Italian rosé wines are celebrated in the beautiful gardens of Villa Appia Antica, in via Pompeo Licinio 8, which will host the event totally outdoors, to allow a more agile and safe development. It will start at 5pm to continue until midnight on Thursday 8 July 2021.
Many companies will be present (the list on www.cucinaevini.it), for a total of over 150 rosé wines to be tasted to accompany greedy street food. An event that the Roman public has always appreciated, especially for what concerns the young and female target, highlighting a global trend that the production – distribution – sales chain has not yet fully grasped. In general, pink wine continues to climb positions in the world, carving out a space that is no longer marginal.
“The world production of pink wine – says Francesco D’Agostino, Director of Cuisine & Wines – is experiencing a growth trend as evidenced by the data. Suffice it to say that in 2002 it was worth 22.4 million hectoliters, equal to 8.5% of wine in general, while in 2019 it recorded a volume of 23 million hectoliters produced, or 9.9%, thus making room for whites and reds.
This phenomenon to pursue a consumption that was worth 19.6 million hectoliters in 2002 (8.4% of the total) and 23.6 in 2019 (10.5% of the total wine consumed). The largest consumers are the French, with over eight million hectoliters, followed by the Americans, at three and a half million, and by the Germans who are around two million.
From this point of view, Italy is experiencing a dynamic that goes against the trend: in 2002 it consumed 1.7 million hectoliters, producing 3.5, while in 2019 a decrease in production, 2.3 million hectoliters, corresponded to a contraction in consumption, to 1.1 million hectoliters. In essence, Italy, while remaining one of the leading countries in export en rose, has seen both production and domestic consumption drop (the data are all from the Observotoire Mondial du Rosé). On the other hand, a figure relating to France is surprising, which has always anticipated phenomena that promptly involved Italy: the per capita consumption of pink wine by the French exceeded fifteen liters per year in 2019, against the two liters that are tasted in Italy.
A significant difference that shows a lower growth in Italy of the pink phenomenon that has been affecting wine consuming countries for some time. In fact, a research by Wine Intelligence reveals a general trend of growth in the number of pink wine consumers, especially as regards the female and young public: think, for example, of the United Kingdom where in just over a decade has gone from 38% of women consumers of pink in 2007 to 58% in 2019.
Speaking of young people between eighteen and thirty-four, always in the UK, always in the same time frame, we go from 46% to 62%. A significant increase which is also confirmed by the general consumption data which, in Great Britain, recorded growth from 30% to 50%. In reality, these peaks linked to the under 35 and female segments characterize world consumption; a trend, I say with a certain pride, that we at Cucina & Vini had intercepted for some time also on the basis of the experiences gained in the various editions of Bererosa ”.
To return to this ninth edition, the gastronomic proposal that Cucina & Vini has chosen for combinations in the name of taste is very interesting. Starting from the fried corner with the Bottega dell’Oliva Ascoli which will bring the famous stuffed olives and cremini directly from Ascoli Piceno. There will also be an excellent selection of fish dishes, both raw and cooked, by the chef Emanuele Paoloni, owner of Salsedine, a fish shop with gastronomy in the Prati district of Rome. And again the gourmet Maritozzi at Il Maritozzo Rosso, the charming restaurant in the heart of Trastevere that declines the Roman yeast par excellence in a savory key.
This year the food proposal is even more delicious thanks to Alfa Forni, one of the sponsors of the event. The company, based in Anagni (Fr), specializes in the production of both professional and domestic ovens, perfect for preparing pizza. The pizzaiolo Giuseppe Di Pinto has the task of churning out delicious ones to combine with the many rosé wines for tasting.
For coffee break lovers there will also be a corner chaired by Fratelli Milano Italian Coffee, another sponsor of Bererosa this year. The Roman roasting that selects the best raw in the world processed with cutting-edge technologies.
And again, speaking of the partners present from various editions, the partnership with Diam Bouchage, a world leader in the production of technical cork closures, is confirmed for this 2021 too.
