The “Tour of Italy in Amphora” is back again on Tuesday, May 29th in Impruneta (Tuscany) with the second cycle of mini-lectures and wine tasting sessions on wines made in terracotta. The Cultural Association “La terracotta e il vino” organiser of this year’s meetings has proposed once again the beautiful historical building of Fornace Agresti as the location of the wine tasting sessions. They will take place on the following Wednesday evenings: May 29th, June 13th and 27th. The choice of Fornace Agresti heralds the return in November (the weekend of the 24th – 25th) of “Terracotta and Wine 2018”, the third edition of the International Biennial event entirely devoted to Amphora Wine, organized by the same Cultural Association.
