WHAT ARE THE WINE TOWN?
The wine towns are spaces dedicated to wine culture, where the richness and the diversity of the wine heritage are enhanced. The wine towns promote wine culture with events, courses and schools for the wine lovers and especially for young people who might want to pursue a career in the food and wine sector. Today they also constitute great touristic attractions, dedicated to a distinguished audience from the food and wine lovers . The Wine Towns are entirely dedicated to wine, its culture, how it’s made and produced. They play a part in promoting other traditional culinary products and the touristic activities connected to these, thus creating job opportunities and promoting sustainable development.
WHERE ARE THE WINE TOWN?
In Bordeaux, hometown of the wine of the same name, right in the heart of the Gironde, we can find “La citè du vin”, a theme park that offers a spectacular journey into the wine world, tracking different ages and cultures. Let’s now move to Italy, specifically around Cuneo, where we can find “Wimu”, also known as the Museum of Barolo. It was opened in 2010 in the charming castle Falletti di Barolo, where the visitor can learn about the history of wine on an enchanted tread of lights and sounds.
