Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this time Cantine Aperte in Friuli Venezia Giulia – organized by Movimento Turismo del Vino FVG – will be limited but still widely enjoyable. Many winemakers will open their winemaking locations and cellars to the public for wine tastings, with some also offering local dishes and products along with their delicious nectars.
Of course, social distancing and safety rules will be thoroughly respected, and wearing masks will be mandatory at all the events.
Celebrating wine in Italy, Greece, Spain and Portugal
Events all around Europe will celebrate wine on November 8th. National Wine Associations from 11 European countries join the RECEVIN network, thus representing more than 800 cities devoted to winemaking.
World Wine Tourism Day 2020's events in Italy will take place in many regions, from the north to the south of the country thanks to the Città del Vino network: Lombardia, Piemonte, Emilia Romagna, Abruzzo, Marche, Campania.
In Friuli Venezia Giulia the main event will be at winemaker Zidarich's premises in Prepotto, a district of Duino-Aurisina (Trieste): Duino-Aurisina's municipality organized an online panel discussion about Vitovska, a native grape typical of the Karst area, which results in an extremely aromatic white wine. Among the speakers there will be Matej Skerlj, president of the Karst Winemakers' Association and some representatives of the local winemaking firms like Kante's Edy Kante, Skerk's Sandy Skerk, Lupinc's Matej Lupinc and, of course, the host Benjamin Zidarich.
Wine tastings in cantinas: check the list!
Cantine Aperte has become a tradition, especially during Saint Martin's days also known in Italy as “S. Martin's summer”, warm days that put autumn's cold on a temporary break. Some of the producers' locations are incredibly beautiful places like castles or historical country mansions, with their outward looks enhanced by the stunning seasonal foliage.
Here are all the winemakers adhering to the Cantine Aperte 2020 on November 7th and 8th in Friuli Venezia Giulia. All the wine firms are followed by their own towns' names and listed under the province of origin.
All events must be reserved in advance! Please check directly at the cantine's mail or phone number for availability. Click here for full details about every single event. More infos at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
