The traditional "Festa dell'Uva" (Grape Festival) evolves and makes way for "Veneto Wine Stars", a weekend dedicated to lovers of good wine, taste and tradition.
From Saturday 25th to Sunday 26th September, in the splendid and intimate location of the Ex Convento di San Francesco, it will be possible to get to know and taste the best wine production of the entire region, chosen and awarded on the occasion of the 27th edition of the "Concorso Enologico Enoconegliano".
In the ancient cloister, served and accompanied by professional sommeliers, it will be possible to freely taste the labels present, accompanied by typical culinary specialities of the regional tradition. Admission is free, while tastings require the purchase of a ticket.
On Saturday 25th September the Ex Convento di San Francesco will also host the Award Ceremony of the EnoConegliano Competition, by invitation only. The event will open with the traditional Cena della vendemmia: on Friday 24th September will celebrate the start of the harvest with a menu full of traditional dishes.
On Saturday 25ft and Sunday 26th September, the programme will be enriched by three guided wine tastings (advance booking required) led by professional oenologists and dedicated to the most famous wines of the Veneto: Incrocio Manzoni, Metodo Classico Veneto, Amarone and Piave Malanotte.
