For more than 20 years, an initiative known as Cantini Aperti, or Open Cellars, has been held throughout Italy. On the last Sunday in May, vintners throughout the country’s wine-producing regions open their premises to an enthusiastic public. Visitors can learn about the wine production process, taste and purchase their favorite wines. Some cellars lay on entertainment and culinary specialties.
Many visitors choose to visit several cellars over the course of the day, hiking or cycling from one to the next. Several wineries will host events and tastings on Saturday, May 30, as well.
