Description

The origins of the Wine Festival date back to the years of the second world war. It was a rural feast, where the farmers and the winegrowers of the area displayed their products. On the last week-end in September, as is the tradition, the streets of the borough are dressed in their Sunday best. The courtyards, run by the different sporting and cultural associations, become meeting points where you can taste delicious local dishes or sip some good wine. Via Stella and Corso Bello fill up with curious people walking through the small market which has a never-ending row of stalls, where you can buy everything from roasted chestnuts to incenses, from cheese from the Muggio Valley to oriental fragrances.
