Do you need an idea for your Christmas holidays waiting for the advent of one of the most enchanting moments of the year? The magic of Christmas, between the 6th and the 22nd of December, awakens in an event that takes place in one of the most attractive and notable towns of Campania: we're talking about Taurasi and its Christmas Wine Fest.
The small medieval village of Taurasi, which is the birthplace of one of the most famous Italian wines of the world, will host one of the first Christmas initiatives dedicated to wine and the Irpinia gastronomic tradition where adults and children can be involved and passionate by the many initiatives proposed during December waiting for Christmas.
They differ from events for wine lovers who can enjoy the sweet advent of Christmas while tasting different glasses of local wine, accompanied by typical dishes of the Irpinia farmland and musical performances with musician Robert Tiso, who will enjoy those present by making the wine itself play through of the chalices, and again, the Bottari, percussionists of peasant origin, who will create melodies with the tools of their daily life such as barrels and sickles.
Local culture and craftsmanship will also perform their part thanks to guided tours through the streets of the centre and the vineyards, where the essence of Taurasi comes to life, and historical-themed parties with ancient dances, historical clothes and singular battles among knights, enriched by the exhibitions on the cribs and the most important historical places of the medieval village.
Everything will be seasoned with the possibility of enjoying the local cuisine through tastings of typical products in combination with wines from local cellars and with the possibility of participating in the "Talks" area, organized by the MAVV Wine Art Museum of Portici, with exponents of the world of wine of national calibre.
The entire event is organized by the Travelers association in partnership with Visit Italy, the online guide of Italy, and sponsored by the Municipality of Taurasi.
And you? What are you waiting for? Come and enjoy Taurasi's Christmas air with history, tradition and fun for the whole family.
