Cantine Aperte 2015 in Puglia: appointment in Mtv Puglia cellars to support

31/05/2015 There is a ferment of preparation for the 23rd edition of Cantine Aperte, the wine festival organised by the Movimento Turismo del Vino in all Italian regions

On Sunday 31st May, over 50 of Puglia’s wineries from Daunia to the Salento will open their doors to wine tourists and enthusiasts for this event celebrating wine and its territories, with wine-tasting and cultural and fun events from morning to night.

Hundreds of labels will be available for tasting in the wineries, ranging from the renowned vintages to the latest novelties on the market, with workshops and mini-courses guided by oenologists and sommeliers. Visitors will also find many combinations of wine and typical local products, music shows and art exhibitions. To see the list of wineries taking part and to receive the latest information about all the programmes of the wineries, just look at the website or follow the event on the MTV Puglia social network accounts (Facebook and twitter) del Movimento.

The Movimento Turismo del Vino is working to protect the environment, and so the theme of the 23rd edition of Cantine Aperte will be "Un tappo, due perchè" (one cork, two causes). Every wine tourist is invited to start collecting corks now. By handing in the corks as they buy their wine-glasses on the day of Cantine Aperte, visitors will be contributing to two good causes: protection of the environment and funding for an information campaign to defend Puglia’s olive-trees.

In addition, Puglia’s green gold will also have a leading role at this festival of regional excellence, and visitors will be able to try some outstanding extra virgin olive oils. Some wineries will host tasting stalls belonging to the partners of the Movimento Turismo dell'Olio.

Wine-lovers will have the choice of transport to the wineries: by car (independently) or by bike (with FIAB Ruotalibera and Cicloamici).

Movimento Turismo del Vino ALWAYS recommends verifying the dates and times of Cantine Aperte-Open Cellars 2015!
