What’s more harmonious than pairing music with wine? That’s the premise behind Melodia del Vino – a series of five classical music concerts combined with wine tastings, hosted at some of Tuscany’s finest vineyards between June 27 and July 6, 2013.
The wineries taking part in the music series include Cantina Antinori nel Classico in Bargina, Cantna Petra near Livorno, Castello Banfi in Montalcino, Tenuta Rocca di Montemassi in Roccastrada (Grosseto) and Tenuta Rocca di Frassinello in Gavorrano (Grosseto). Performers include Italy’s Giovanni Belluci on the piano and Marc Laforêt (France) on piano accompanied by French cellist Henri Demarquette.
This is the third year for Melodia del Vino and is based on the French festival Grands Crus Musicaux, a cultural project which has been received with great success in the Bordeaux region for the past 10 years. This article in The Florentine has additional details.
