Zola Predosa (BO)

The 18th edition of Zola Jazz&Wine is a chance to enjoy jazz concerts in the places usually linked to wine growing and tasting. Jazz musicians spread their music through vineyards and cellars, in events combined with tastings of local wines, like the famous "Pignoletto".

The new edition of the jazz festival takes place from June 30 to July 2 in the beautiful surroundings of Zola Predosa and includes two locations of great cultural and artistic significance: Palazzo Albergati and Villa Edvige Garagnani.

On Friday, June 30, Villa Edvige Garagnani is the setting for the concert "Noodling Thelonious Around & other stories” by the Organ Trio, a reinterpretation of Thelonious Monk's classics with a bluesy touch. Starting from 7PM the Villa hosts local wine tastings, combined with finger food and delicious dishes.

On Saturday, July 1, Zola Jazz&Wine goes outside in the traditional vineyard concert, anticipated by a picnic in the vineyard Terre Rosse Vallania. Starting from 6PM, it's possible to chill out among the grapevines, taste local wines and food specialties from the picnic baskets (on reservation) while listening to the traveling concert of the Rimini Swing Band, featuring dixie music and more.

On Sunday, July 2, the event takes place in the suggestive baroque garden of Palazzo Albergati, with the “Cal Trio 2.0” concert. The band, led by one of the most valued Italian guitarists, Domenico Caliri, performs original songs and reinterpretations of jazz classics. At the end of the concert, it is possible to have an aperitif with local wines and a wide selection of finger food and more.

Date: the event will be held from Jun 30, 2017 to Jul 02, 2017
