Wine festival at the Giglio island

If you are think of a trip to Maremma in next September, don’t miss the Wine Festival in Giglio island, one of our best events around! Indeed, in such time many towns in Maremma celebrates the Wine Festivals, also because of arrival of new wine. The “Cantine aperte” Festival (winery festival) is held in the last weekend of September and happens in the little town of Giglio Castello. The “Star” is one only: the Asoneco wine, the only locally produced, with strong flavor, and good alcoholic gradiation. On this island such wine is produced from 2 milleniums now, and it grows few meters from the mediterranina sea. Not only wine at the festival. The locals are happy to prepare local meals such as ham and cheese tasting with banquets held in antique and rustic wine cellars, typical of Giglio. During the day tasting groups are organised and you can also visit the most secret corners of Giglio, while at night the party atmosphare shows up with live music and expecially a typical local dance held at midnight. You will be asked to partecipate! You can reach Giglio Island with ferreys from Porto Santo Stefano and Port’Ercole, about 1 hour navigation and you are arrived. The car is not fondamental but if you want to take it with you on the island book in advance. You can also choose to sleep at Giglio since there are Hotels and BnB. We will wait you at our farms after the party 😉
