dal 30-8-2017 al 10-9-2017
The Montecarlo Wine Festival - one of the oldest in Tuscany - celebrates half a century. Its traditions have always been linked to the typical product of Montecarlo, wine, a destiny testified by the meaning of the ancient name of the village, Vivinaia, that is, the passage of the wine road that crossed ever since the whole hill of Montecarlo.
The primary goal of the event has always been that of promoting tourism and trade in Montecarlo, its typical products such as wine and oil, the tourist facilities and restaurants located in the area as well as its traditions. The Wine Festival, with its many initiatives, is in fact the main event for enhancing and promoting Montecarlo.
Among the numerous events a special mention is deserved by the celebrations of the Most Holy Madonna of the Rescue that are held each year on September 8th. But many more are the events ranging from cultural moments to musical performances, dance and theater performances, children's entertainment, art exhibitions, wine and gastronomic initiatives.
The Salotto del vino will offer a number of degustation evenings with gastronomic combinations in typical restaurants of the village, animated by the well-known television host Fabrizio Diolaiuti, while in Piazza Garibaldi every evening from 20:00 to 23:30 h. will be held the "Tastings under the Stars" with matching of wine with local cheeses and cold meats. At 20:30 h. in the lounge of the Pellegrini Carmignani Institute each evening at 8:30 pm you can taste the DOC wines of the Montecarlo hills during the Salotto del vino e del Verde event.
