05/07/2010 As a sign of respect for the environment and for eco-sustainability, the 10th of August "Calici di Stelle" will be staged in the wineries of the Movimento Turismo del Vino and in the piazzas of the Città del Vino, under the rain of falling stars of Saint Lawrence's night (info: www.movimentoturismovino.it and www.cittadelvino.it).

 As a sign of respect for the environment and for eco-sustainability,  the 10th of August “Calici di Stelle” will be staged in the wineries of the Movimento Turismo del Vino and in the  piazzas of the Città del Vino, under the rain of falling stars of Saint Lawrence’s night (info: www.movimentoturismovino.it and www.cittadelvino.it).

From the separate collection of items to the recycling, from energy saving to the use of renewable energy sources, the world of wine becomes more and more environmently friendly: an issue that  goes through the whole production process, from the vineyard to the cellar, a challenge that involves not only  the wineries, but the entire territory that surrounds them, and that is becoming an ever increasing interest of wine aficionados.

The 2010 edition of Calici di Stelle guarantees a calendar full of all sorts of events, from wine tasting to wine tours, from menus based on themes suggested by chefs to historical commemorations, from night walks to urban trekkings, music, exhibitions, markets, cinema and theater to be lived within the splendid frames of the MTV wineries members of or in the piazzas of the Città del Vino participating in the special events. 

This edition, dedicated to the environment, will therefore be an opportunity to let the wine aficionados  find out how the eco-sustainability issue  is gaining more and more space in the wine world, even during events such as “Calici di Stelle”: not only the exclusive use of glass goblets, rather than plastic ones, but also the separate collection  of corks – used in bioconstruction –and of  bottles. Many wineries use those made of lightened glass along with recycled paper labels, producing their “eco-friendly” wines through renewable forms of energy such as the sun, water and biomasses, thanks to their abundance in the countryside.

Between one wine tasting and another, it will be possible to observe the sky and the stars under the expert guidance of the “Unione Italiana Astrofili”. In many piazzas and wineries you will also have the chance to receive a free “breathalyzer”, aimed at promoting a moderate and conscientious consumption of wine. For the occasion the breathalyzers are branded with the unmistakable “Calici di Stelle” logo, for an instant  pre-driving test.
 
We also want to remind you that on, the 23rd and the 24th of July, the Parco della Storga in the Province of Treviso hosts a special preview of Calici di Stelle with special events that should not be missed!
