Two days together, two days of itineraries and the discovery of a great wine, but also to talk about excellence, sustainability, local values. Two days that enlivened the historic center of San Gimignano, with many enthusiasts who had the opportunity to taste a great white wine of Tuscany – The Queen of Tuscan white wines in a land of Reds – in all its many nuances, deepening their knowledge about the territory through the masterclasses at the Rocca di Montestaffoli and meeting, in a walk-around tasting, the producers – Paladins of Vernaccia di San Gimignano – present with their stands in the city squares.
35 producers, members of the Consortium, joined the wine fest, presenting over 100 labels. There were over two thousand wine tastings in the squares, an extremely satisfying number for an event born this year.
Sold out for the opening conference “L’Amor che de la vite cola”, in the presence of the city and regional authorities, italian expert journalists, with highly prestigious speakers, who took turns on the topics of sustainability and wine-health, while the gala dinner – organized by the starred chef Vito Mollica, who returned from the jordanian royal wedding just for the occasion – saw the presence of 130 institutional guests of the Consortium, gathered for the occasion in the evocative cloister of Sant’Agostino; in the end, the aperitif and the after dinner at the Rocca di Montestaffoli have attracted the younger public, for a moment of light and convivial tasting.
We look forward to seeing you in 2024
for the second edition of the Wine Fest!
Irina Strozzi, the president of the Consortium, comments as follows: “We are very satisfied that this first edition has received such a hugely successful response and strong interest in our denomination. This is wine: it is culture, it is art in all its forms, it is knowledge, it is sharing and community. But also respect and politeness, which we found in the many people gathered in San Gimignano last weekend. And to all those who were unable to be with us, I say: come and visit us in San Gimignano throughout the year, to get to know our Queen of Tuscan white wines. Unique, noble, rebel ”.
The appointment is, therefore, all year round but also in 2024, for the second edition of the Regina Ribelle Wine Fest, with new opportunities and emotions from Vernaccia di San Gimignano!
