From August 2 to 11 some villages, towns and cities of the wine producing areas of Tuscany will host one of the most anticipated events in summer: Calici di stelle. The name says it all!
In the period when it is easier to see shooting stars, the magical nights spent with your nose up to the sky become even more special thanks to the opportunity to taste great Tuscan wines. Where? Across the whole region, since the best wines in Tuscany are produced almost everywhere in Tuscany. You just have to choose the location you prefer and follow your heart - or perhaps just go to where your favourite wine is produced! You can go to the famous Chianti area with two centres such as Gaiole and Castellina, in Montepulciano, in Carmignano the kingdom of Barco Reale and even reaching fantastic Siena!
Calici di stelle 2019 showcases many summer wine events in Tuscany and delicious tastings of traditional produce and, thanks to the availability of true astrophile groups, also with interesting guided star observations. For the occasion, many wineries will also open their doors to let tourists taste and buy their wonderful products.
Like previous years, Calici di Stelle 2019 in Tuscany in August has a leading theme in all the various Calici di Stelle events: the Calici di Stelle program 2019 is dedicated to the fiftieth anniversary of the first landing of man on the moon. If the sky is clear, in addition to the stars you will also enjoy the magical sight of the moon.
For one of the major Tuscany summer wine events, such as the 2019 edition of Calici di Stelle, we recommend that you visit the websites of the two organizing associations for the latest updates or any variations. Meanwhile, we would like to give you some tips for your August in Tuscany between wine and stars:
The province of Arezzo includes Valdarno and part of Valdichiana, two important areas for wine production and for other excellent local produce, such as the famous Chianina beef. You can taste this steak on Sunday 11 August at the Tenuta di Frassineto, where you can enjoy a dinner full of goodies, naturally accompanied by excellent wines! Check the program for Calici di Stelle in Arezzo and its province, and discover all the ways you can immerse yourself in the flavors of this area!
If you are in Toscana during Calici di Stelle, heading to Chianti is definitely a good idea, as far as wines are concerned it is definitely the most famous area in the region! In Greve in Chianti, for example, Torraccia di Presura organizes a really interesting program from 2 to 11 August: walks through the vineyards and olive trees, toasts to the moon and romantic moments at sunset. In Gambassi Terme, at Agricola Tamburini, on 6 August, in addition to tasting, thanks to the Astrophile Group of Certaldo and their instruments you can also watch the stars.
The calendar of events for Calici di Stelle in Grosseto is rich and varied. In wonderful Pitigliano at Agriturismo Poggio al Tufo on 9 August you can have a real feast of the typical dishes of the Maremma combined with the wines of the winery: carpaccio of Chianina and Vermentino, Pici and a glass of Rompicollo, pork with plums and Alicante... It all sounds mouth-watering, don’t you agree? If, on the other hand, you want to be romantic with your better half, at Tenuta dell'Impostino in Civitella Paganico from 2 to 10 August there will be a series of evenings with lights off: the summer nights will be lit only by candles and the shimmer of the stars.
Are you planning a beach holiday on the Etruscan Coast? Then you have to take advantage of it to enjoy the Calici di Stelle events scheduled around this area. Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci are two perfect destinations! In the first town at Campo alle Comete (the name says it all…) BBQ and star gazing. On Calici di Stelle in Bolgheri you will be able to enjoy a rich buffet watered down with the good wine of Fatttoria Casa di Terra scheduled on 8 August and the visit to the Multimedia Wine Sensory Museum on the 9.
In Palaia, at Usiglian del Vescovo winery, during the event on 9 August included in the program of Calici di Stelle in Pisa, the tasting of delicacies and wine will be accompanied by jazz music, a truly classy pairing! Montecastelli Pisano, on the other hand, will be the location of a truly evocative guided tour by candlelight in the cellar dug in the rock by the Etruscans, an event that will be repeated several times from 2 to 11 August.
Marini Giuseppe Winery will accompany its guests on a sensory journey round the wines produced by them and traditional Tuscan dishes. There will also be FISAR sommeliers who will dispense their valuable advice on how to get good pairings. The evening, which will take place on 2 August, will end with a toast with a nice glass of Vin Santo.
For a good 3 nights, from 8 to 10 August, in Carmignano during Calici di Stelle, the splendid gardens of the Rocca will showcase tastings of world famous wines such as Barco Reale or Vin Santo and a host of events for you and also your children: tasting of local produce and renowned wines, jazz and swing music, telescopes to admire the stars and workshops for the little ones!
Calici di Stelle in Montepulciano, the home of the famous Vino Nobile, is one of the most anticipated events of the whole year because in addition to the tasting of its famous wines, it includes a series of collateral events during a very long night of San Lorenzo: the dinner of the eight districts of the Bravio delle Botti, live music, flag-waving and drummers shows and the ever-present market! But Calici di Stelle in Siena and its province is packed with events, at the end of the day this is Chianti area. More tips?
