Festival season hasn't started yet. We still have to wait for another 4 months till Montalcino's fabulous Jazz festival is ready to go. The 2012 Jazz & Wine program isn't out yet, but I'm on the heel of Banfi vintners and will have a shout out on this blog as soon as I can get them to disclose some of the big names that will make it to Montalcino this July.
In the meantime Italian Jazz musician Valerio Annicchiarico is taking it up to him to open the music season. With the warm spring temperatures we are all ready to leave the house and join some life events. Restaurant La Pieve close to Banfi's Castello Poggio alle Mura provides the beautiufl location.
WHERE: LA PIEVE DI POGGIO ALLE MURA
WHEN: Every Friday in March
WHAT: Four evenings in the name of Jazz, wine and Tuscan cuisine.
WHO: Jazz Guitarist Valerio Annicchiarico organises the sessions at La Pieve and will play a different programme each Friday.
La Pieve also offers beautiful bedrooms and apartments for anybody interested to stay the night.
