It's summer and Montalcino knows it. July is an incredible month when it comes to live events and concerts in small Brunello town.
- This week the Melodia del Vino festival will be guest at the Castello Banfi winery with famous Russian violoncellist Alexander Kniazev. Tickets cost 23€ and include a wine tasting which will quite probably circle around Banfi Vintner's Brunello, Supertuscans and Banfi Brut (the winery's dry sparkling wine from Nothern Italy). Wine tasting starts at 7pm, concert around 8.30pm. Castello Banfi, Thursday July 5 - Melodia del Vino.
- Earlier in the week you can dance off at Bar Le Logge (on Montalcino's main square opposite of Bar La Fiaschetteria). DJ set with music from the 90s and a rich buffet make for a promising evening. Bar Le Logge di Piazza - Wednesday July 4.
- On Thursday the party goes on at Kaffeina, which has been taken on by a new owner, who's starting off with Caviar and Champagne. I'd say we are happy to welcome these new folks in town! KAFFEINA, via S. Saloni 35 - Thursday July 5.
