17/11/2016 Come to Umbria, the green heart of Italy,m and organize your wedding day

Umbria is becoming the favoured Wine Wedding Destination. It offers its stunning range of vineyards, wineries and cellars – with their rich accumulation of tradition, the warmth of their welcome, their distinctive regional gastronomy and passion for wine making – as the perfect and unique venue for hosting your YES Day. Thanks to the Movimento Turismo del Vino Umbria (Wines of Umbria Tourism Movement) , in collaboration with Coef Eventi , the first edition of 'Wine Cellars Open for Weddings' will be held on the 27th and 28th of November 2016 here in the 'Green Heart of Italy'. This two-day program is entirely dedicated to winery/cellar weddings and thus provides the ideal information and networking opportunity for couples looking to their own wedding Day, for Wedding Planners, Tour Operators, and service providers in this sector. Reflecting the widespread enthusiasm for the initiative among overseas operators in the sector, the event 'Cantine Aperte for Wedding' will host a large group of wedding professionals from Central Europe (Perfect Day, BeautifulDay, Dash Luxury and others) under the coordination of Joanna Miro, the Territorial Marketing and owner of the 'TerroirDiVini'.
Of course the commercial operators from the wedding sector will also be present in the cellars both to present their offers and many new new concepts for the ceremonies, as well as food and wine tastings. 'The cellars, with all their rich accumulation of tradition, warmth of their welcome, typical gastronomy and passion - according to Gioia Bacoccoli from the MTV Umbria and Alessandra Carbonari from Coef Eventi, creators of the event –are unique venues in which to host the very special 'Wine Cellars Open for Weddings Day' for all those who are seeking an original location which will make even more memorable their wedding ceremony, giving them the opportunity to discover the romantic atmosphere of the cellars and vineyards of Umbria ,with their richness of tourist proposals, themes for the wedding couple and their guests, the specialties of excellent cuisine, and characteristic artisanship. 19 of the vineyards/cellars participating in the program have already hosted some 96 weddings. For the remainder of the participants, their involvement has been born out of the 2016-18 program for the development of wine tourism which was initiated last January under the auspices of the Directing Committee of the MTV……. And it is true to say that, with 'Love Me in Umbria' as its new project, the Umbria Region Tourism has invested heavily in this form of romantic tourism. The data provided by the Council for Tourism states that in 2015 the direct benefits were 17 million euro, while the broader benefits totaled 23 million, and that around 87,000 foreigners came to Umbria which is equal to 7 per cent of the total international visitor market.
