The end of May sees 2 fantastic events for those wanting to explore deeper into the incredible wines that Abruzzo is now famous for across the globe.
2017 is Abruzzo’s nineteenth Cantine Aperte and this year’s 2-day celebration sees 33 cantinas across the provinces of Teramo, Pescara and Chieti open their doors for an indulgent-tasting of the best from their cellars.
The art of pairing and promotion of Abruzzo’s enviable DOP and DOCG foods is being recognised this year through a new program ‘Oro d’Abruzzo’ that will be run at the cantinas and provide a delicious complete taste of rural Abruzzo. Some wineries offering visitors trekking, mountain bike rides, concerts and theatre.
