Melodia del Vino Festival: Wine & Classical Music in Tuscany

Tue, 06/10/2014 - 02:30
Classical music concerts and wine tasting come to Tuscan wineries this summer. From June 26th until July 6th, anyone can have the opportunity to visit some truly great wineries, while also listening to beautiful music at the 2014 edition of Melodia del Vino, now in its 4th edition as a music festival. This event is the brainchild of Marc Laforet and Michel Gotlib, who also created the sucessful French festival 'Grands Crus Musicaux' in Bordeaux, France.

ITALY Magazine had the chance to visit some beautiful Tuscan wineries first hand during a special blog tour - #melodia2014 - stopping at prestigious wineries to get a first-hand look at what festival goers can expect.

This year's event includes concerts, wine tastings & aperitif at six different locations, stretching from the famous Cantina Antinori winery in Bargino to the historical exiled residence of Napoleon on the Elba Island, the famous and majestic Villa San Martino. The full program can be found here.

Many of the musical concerts will take place in special locations at the wineries: imagine getting lost to classical music in the vicinity of large wooden wine barrels and discovering more about music and wine that you would ever expect. If anything, this is a prime chance to escape the city and get (literally) lost in wine and music for a very special Italian summer night. 

Ticket prices range from 10 euros to 30 euros p.p and can be purchased here.
