Open Wineries - 25 years of this wine festival

Outdoor activities including hiking, eco and mountain bikes; poetry, art and photography, but also pop, rock, jazz and folk music; food and wine tastings of local products and lots of solidarity.



This is the program of Open Wineries 2017, an event of the Wine Tourism Movement (WTM) which this year, on Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28, has reached its 25th edition. About 800 vineyards all over Italy will participate in this long wine tourism weekend, the most highly anticipated wine festival that every year brings together enthusiasts from the North and South of the boot.


Tastings, pairings of local wine and food and tours of the wineries are the main ingredients of these events in Emilia Romagna, where there are 60 wineries that will open their doors to enthusiasts and curious people.

The theme of this year’s edition is solidarity. In fact for this birthday, the Wine Tourism Movement will support the areas hit by the earthquake with the project “Solidarity Bottle” of WTM Marche, to buy an ambulance for the areas hit. But not only. This great wine festival will close out the initiative WTM for Amatrice, the fundraiser launched during the September edition while the collaboration with Airc, the Italian association for cancer research, continues and to which all the proceeds from the sale of the glasses marked Cantine Aperte 25 will go. Among the many other charity events, there is also that of the Cystic Fibrosis Association (Trentino Alto Adige, May 27 and 28) and of Unicef, supported by WTM Friuli Venezia Giulia (59 wineries, May 27 and 28) for the campaign ‘Children in danger’.


The association Wine Tourism Movement is a non-profit organization and will involve about 900 of the most prestigious wineries of Italy, selected on the basis of specific requirements, first among them being the quality of their wine tourism hospitality. The goal of this association is to promote the culture of wine through visits to the places it is produced. The Movement hopes on one hand to help wine tourists get to know the companies and products of the participating wineries and on the other to offer an example of how you can do business while respecting traditions, safeguarding the environment and using quality agriculture.
