Over the years, it has become one of the most awaited wine fest on Giglio Island, in Italy. An event during which wine and good food lovers will gather here during the last weekend of September. And also in 2015, from September 24 to 26, the Festa dell’uva e delle cantine aperte (literally “Festival of grapes and open cellars”).

The undisputed protagonist, as you may guess, will be the wine of Giglio Island. Especially the Ansonaco, the king of wines of this island: a white and dry wine, strong flavor and almost amber color. You can taste it in the charming town of Giglio Castello, where the event will take place.

And if the wine is the protagonist, the typical dishes of Giglio Island will have a place of honor: some of them are pasta with fish, tuna fillets in oil, cacciucco, palamita alla gigliese, panficato.

Wine and food are not the only reasons that attract several visitors here. On the occasion of Festa dell’uva e delle cantine aperte, there will be music, entertainments and, of course, lots of fun.
