Has anyone been to the The Grape Festival in Impruneta?

Jump to last reply

We could stop by here when we leave Castellina in Chianti to head for Lucca. I had planned on going to Volterra that day, so I would have to re-arrange some things if we go to the Festival. It sounds kind of fun.

Festa dell'Uva (Grape Festival)
The Grape Festival, which started in 1926, and is probably the most popular annual event in Impruneta both for natives and tourists. Over the years it lost some of the original rural characteristics but its essential popular nature has remained intact. The most important part of the parade consists of allegorical carts built by the four districts of Impruneta: Fornaci, Pallò, Sant’Antonio and Sante Marie. During the day of the festival, popular dances, performances, tasting of agricultural products and shows of the local handicraft products are held. The "festa dell’uva" is held on last Sunday of September. The food stalls open at 11 am and the parade of floats starts at 3.30 pm
