What is winetown?
WineTown, an international event with the highest quality wine producers.
A permanent annual event, organized by the Wine Town Committe with support from the A.I.S. Italian Sommelier Association (Associazione Italiana Sommelier) and the Association of Italian Historic Houses (Associazione Dimore Storiche Italiane).
An invitation to drink responsibily. The rediscovery of the ancient values of conviviality. Born from the union between quality wine, which is the art of fruit and a mixture of lifestyle, culture and territory. Three circles that form a wine glass in their center. A heart of fragrances and stories, of knowledge and tastes. Florence: a glass for your city! A window on our territory, the most beautiful one can imagine. A secret for most and unexplored for many. Let’s open our city to the world with pride. Let’s visit the cloisters, loggias, squares, streets and gardens. With many languages present, many people, music and colors.
The gorgeous palazzi of Florence will be the background for our event, here’s the most breathtaking:
- Mercato Centrale,
- The porch of the Bacco Theater in the Round,
- Palazzo Pitti,
- Loggia del Grano,
- Palazzo Antinori,
- Chiostro Grande dell’Ammannati.
A lot of music and theatrical events throughout Florence’s historical center with wine tasting throughout the streets and many events in a short period! Time dedicated to wellness, entertainment, laughter and everything that good wines has to offer: in one word, friendship.
