Two weeks before Christmas, Movimento Turismo del Vino Toscana (www.mtvtoscana.eu) donates €5,000 raised at the charity auction for the Tuscan Cancer Agency, which provides free treatments and homecare of cancer patients. Thirty-eight lots were vied for, fine Tuscan wines from standard bottles to Magnums, which will be on the Christmas tables of the lucky buyers who participated on Saturday, December 7 in the prestigious Antinori cellar in the Chianti Classico region in Bargino.

For the first time since opening, the Antinori Chianti Classico winery became the star of a charity auction made possible by the Movimento Turismo del Vino Toscana in collaboration with Fisar from Florence and a top auctioneer, the director of state auctions Curzio Mazzi, the true showman of the evening.

“An achievement which fills me with pride,” explains President of the Movimento Turismo del Vino Toscana Violante Gardini, “but also with gratitude. I thank the Antinori family for their hospitality, the spirit of collaboration and the enthusiasm with which they welcomed me from the start of our project. I also thank all the MTV Toscana cellars that donated top wines of unequivocal prestige, thanks to which it was possible to give a strong and concrete help to the Tuscan Cancer Agency and which will give the buyers the chance to put “good” and “fine” wines on their Christmas tables.”
