Christmas among the vineyards
During the weekend of the Immacolata, December 8 – 10, the Movimento Turismo del Vino is organizing Cantine Aperte at Christmas: many winemakers will open their doors to visitors with events designed ad hoc, tastings and guided visits. Some examples? Casa di Terra and Tenuta di Vaira in the area around Bolgheri, and Poggio La Luna in Maremma. From December 12 to Epiphany, anyone passing along via Chiantigiana should make a late-evening stop at Villa Cerna. They will witness an unprecedented site. Luci in vigna, a luminous installation commissioned by the Cecchi Family, made by Angela Nocentini, and designed and produced by Riccardo Cioni. The leaves in the vineyard will come to life with light and dimension, from dusk to deep in the night, transforming the vineyard into a magical illumination. And with the arrival of the company’s 125th anniversary, the façade of the headquarters of the historic wine cellar will also come to life with colourful projections that celebrate this important anniversary.
But another surprise awaits at the gates to Arezzo: the historic mechanical Nativity in the medieval village of Tenuta Il Borro, property of the Ferragamo family who produces excellent wines here. A corner of history and magic, where every child is fascinated by the immense splendour and where each one of us can once again be a young dreamer.
