The Cultural Association “La terracotta e il vino” and organizer of the biennial Event “Terracotta and Wine” is back again in the old Terracotta Workshop Fornace Agresti with a programme of lectures in collaboration with FISAR of Florence with the aim to approach the world of wine made in amphora.
The course of three wine tasting lectures will be held at “Fornace Agresti”, Impruneta on Tuesday evenings at 20.30 (see PROGRAMME Attached). The lectures take place on May 16th, May 23rd and June 6th (excluding Tuesday May 30th)
The choice of the old Terracotta Workshop Fornace Agresti for the location of the course, is not a casual one: from 2014 the 18th Century building has hosted two international events on amphora wines and it is here since the beginning of the 1700’s, that the clay of Impruneta, has been mixed with water, dried with air and baked with fire, a fusion of the four elements to create terracotta artefacts of inimitable beauty.
