Over 200 bloggers will meet to discuss the relationship between wine enthusiasts and the Internet also looking to opportunities in the future. The meeting will take place against the historical background of the Santa Giulia Monastery Museum which has been kindly offered for this purpose by the Brescia City Authorities.
