The 'Brancusi' Experience: Earth and Art in the Wine Glass

Experience Lago Maggiore presents the exciting enological tasting journey offered by ‘Brancusi‘, which begins among the ancient vineyards of Angera, rooted in the winemaking tradition of Lake Maggiore. Our sommelier will guide you through four independent winemakers, taking you across producers from Lake Iseo, Lake Como, and the hills beyond the Po River. During the tasting, wine art merges with history, allowing you to appreciate four different authentic grapes cultivated in the Lombard and Piedmontese lands. The experience may be accompanied by the live sound of an accordion. The tasting is organized in a charming historic villa in Cittiglio, home to Experience Lago Maggiore. White, red, and sparkling wines will be expertly paired with traditional breadsticks, artisanal chocolate, and delicacies such as Piedmont hazelnuts.
