If you love wine and would like to pass a beautiful summer evening next week, remember that Friday, August 10, 2012 is generally known as the day of falling stars, which falls on the day of San Lorenzo. For this special night, many towns across Tuscany have dedicated a special night called “Calici di Stelle” to celebrate the region’s great wines!
Organized by the Wine Tourism Movement, Calici di Stelle offers many extraordinary events in many piazzas across Italy.
Amongst the many Tuscan cities participating in the event is Castellina in Chianti, Castiglione d’Orcia, Colle di Val d’Elsa, Gaiole in Chianti, Greve in Chianti, Montepulciano, San Gimignano, Siena, Cortona, Lucignano, Rapolano Terme all renowned for their fine wine production.
Wine will be the absolute protagonist in one of the most suggestive and evocative nights of the year, when you will have the possibility to admire San Lorenzo’s falling stars, the “tears” of the saint according to the legend, in the good company of exquisite wine.
A magic summer night when all your dreams can become true, so book your holiday on www.chiantiferie.net to stay in one of the farmhouse that with their wines will take part to the event.
