Have you ever thought that September might be the perfect time of the year for planning a vacation in Italy?
Experience wine tours in Tuscany, Umbria and Lake Garda
First of all, you need to know that September is perfect for experiencing Italy’s myriad wine regions. The diversity of landscapes and grape varieties is heavenly, and as a result Italy produces the largest range of wine styles in Europe. The Italian countryside has golden fields of wheat and sunflowers and most of all, the pale green of vines.
There is no better place to admire the beauty of nature than in a vineyard. Each Italian winery has its story and it’s worth visiting because of the sweet scent of sun, flooded grapes that sharply contrasts with the dark, slightly musty air of the winery. It is said that Tuscany is like a great bottle of wine, created with love and perfectly aged.
Are you wondering what can you do in an Italian winery? After serving a glass of wine you will learn about the passion, history and innovations behind that wine. While you enjoy it you will find out about the food that matches perfectly with it. The wonderful landscapes that will surround you will create an amazing atmosphere and a unique experience for your senses.
Plan your Tuscan wine tour if you also want to be close to the displaying of several works of international artists as part of the new project designed to bring together wine, travel and art.
Wine and art lovers are being encouraged to navigate Tuscan wine country to find the artworks at the different wineries. Named ‘The Art of the Treasure Hunt’, the project includes sculptures, installations, photographs and films, all based inside Tuscany wineries. It has been developed to mark 300 years since the 1716 edict from Cosimo III de’ Medici. That document is considered to have been the first attempt to draw up boundaries for the Chianti wine region. Kasia Redzisz, who is running the project and is also senior curator at Tate Liverpool in the UK, said that the experience oscillates between the old and the new. This marvelous experience will be about contemplating contemporary while savoring and tasting ageing wine.
