LE DONNE DEL VINO - WOMEN AND SUMMER WINE IN APULIA
We had the pleasure of participating in the first edition of the Summer Wine
event in Locorotondo, Bari, in the Tenuta Cardone Vini.
The event was organised by the local government of the city as part of the celebration of the Saint of the city, San Rocco.
Locorotondo or "Wine City" is known as the mother of wine. This is one event that Puglia region organises with,
"Le Donne del Vino
" / Wine's Women. Wine, food, and cultural traditions come together for an event that is "on the move" -- one different location each time to bring awareness to all local producers, region by region.
«SummerWine is a welcome from "Le Donne del Vino" in a very special corner of Puglia, each year different - Sabrina Soloperto
, President of "Le Donne del Vino" Puglia delegation, explains - This time was Valle d'Itria time. The event was the representation of a photogallery of Puglia, displaying the beauty of the country side, its summer smells, traditional food and traditions.
