Are you craving some wine? Are you a wine lover? Then you have arrived in Florence just in time for the Florence Wine Event being held in the Oltrarno. Tomorrow starts this exciting wine-tasting event! From the 3rd of June to 5th, all the vineyards, Tenutas, Villas will be showcasing their collection of Chianti, Chianti Classico, Pinot Grigio and Vernaccia. The Florence Wine Event started five years and is organized to promote the fantastic Italian wine Tuscany has to offer and as well as to enhance the Oltrarno. This event will take place in Piazza Pitti and will also present the rich history and crafts of the artisan zone of Florence. It will celebrate the spirit of this side of the Arno.

The philosophy of the event is to offer the public two wines: an affordable wine,  instead the high class ones. The Florence Wine Event is a festive event and welcomes summer into the Oltrarno.  Also welcomes both the tourists and Fiorentini wine lovers.  Together grasping a delicious glass of wine in hand.

Florence Wine Event starts at 4pm on June 3rd until 8pm on June 5th. Each participant must purchase a tasting kit which includes a cup, a shoulder strap, a catalog and a drink card with a fixed number of samples.
