Barolo and Derthona take the stage in Milan

26 May 2022: a day of tastings with the producers of the Strada del Barolo and Terre Derthona in the heart of the Lombard capital

The initiative will be hosted in the scenic Cloister of Magnolia at Fondazione Stelline located in an ancient monastery of the fifteenth century, now used as a multifunctional space. The complex encloses a secret garden and a place that brings with itself fascinating stories: it is said that the whole area was once part of the famous Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vineyard.

Thursday, May 26, 2022, from 17.00 to 22.00 the inner corridors of the cloister will become an ideal route through the Langhe and the Tortonesi Hills where the Milanese wine lovers will have the opportunity to taste different labels of Barolo DOCG and Timorasso Derthona Doc. Twenty producers will personally present the multiple facets of these wines, offering different cru and vintages to taste.

The tastings will be paired with live music and excellent agri-food products presented by companies associated with Strada del Barolo and Terre Derthona and by I Barolisti, a winery with restaurant in the heart of Milan, which boasts a selection of over a hundred labels and offers menus with typical Langa dishes.

The public will have access to the garden overlooking the cloister: the perfect place enjoy food and wine and chill outdoor in a unique and charming location equipped with chairs and tables.

During the event there will also be interesting opportunities for further study: two tasting moments, at 18.00 and 19.15, led by Danilo Poggio, journalist, and Chiara Giannotti of Vino TV, writer. Some producers will also join these meetings, talk about their experience and propose, for tasting, a particularly representative wine of their companies not included among those displayed on the tasting desks set up in the cloister.

The cost of the entrance ticket is € 40.00 per person and includes unlimited tastings, in addition to the glass of Strada del Barolo and the cup holder. To access the tasting lounge there is an extra cost of € 5.00 per person on the entrance ticket.
