Culinary vacation in tuscany

Every year on the third weekend of September (2012 september 13th-16th) the vintners of Panzano meet in the village square to show their wines, often pronounced as the best of the region. You have the chance to sample the different styles of wines, chat with the winemakers and listen to some great music!

The vintners of Panzano don’t just gather once a year to show their best wines to the public. They are also a close-knit group that unites to control quality production, promote organic & sustainable vineyard techniques and much more. There are several small booths snuggled around Panzano’s small main square. You buy one ticket allowing you to taste whatever you wish!

The estate owners are presenting their own wines and are on hand to tell you all about their products and as it’s their wine they each seem to have many cases on hand, ensuring there is no shortage…

Interested? Then come and join wine producers in Panzano in Chianti, the heart of Chianti, book your stay on
