Themed evening events dedicated to the great past of wine-growing and producing of our territory, to the Wineries chosen by Caremma for its wine list and to its vine-dressers, the pioneers of organic wine.
The experience consists in a small iconographic tour to rediscover the wine-growing of the Abbiatense area. The vineyard, a cultivation which is widely spread in all the Ticino Valley and even in the Milanese area, one of the many “forgotten stories” of agriculture. From Leonardo’s Vineyard in front of the church of “Santa Maria delle Grazie” (Holy Mary of Grace) to the great number of Winepresses and Wineries for wine-making scattered all over the territory. Many elements bear witness to a presence which is so important as to influence also the language (in the Milanese dialect “andà alla vigna” (going to the vineyard) is a synonym of “going into the country”).
Cascina Caremma resumed this tradition by replanting a vineyard in the same plot of land where there was one until 150 years ago and by resuming wine-making from 2007.
Every Thursday will be dedicated to a Winery and a vine-dresser will be present in the hall for the wine tasting of his own wines during dinner.
A way to meet directly those pioneers of organic wines and “Resisting Farmers”, the last bards of the “Hymn of the Earth to the Sky”, as defined by the great Gino Veronelli.
