Open Wineries Day Italy Sunday 25 May 2008

Every year on the last Sunday in May, hundreds of wineries welcome visitors to the “Cantine Aperte“. On this day many small wineries which may not usually offer public access can be visited by wine lovers. You can taste the wine and buy direct from the producer. Some wineries also offer samples of local food. There may be a small charge at some venues.

If you happen to be close to my beloved Lake Iseo in northern Italy between Bergamo and Brescia you can visit some wineries which produce the premier Italian sparkling wine Franciacorta.

We’ll be in Italy driving south through Tuscany from the Pisa area to Lake Trasimeno so if we happen to pass a winery participating in the event we may pop in.
