ViniPendenti wants to be a place to rediscover values, agricultural practices and joviality that seemed to have disappeared, but it also looks to the future, to new concepts of sustainability, awareness and attention. And this is precisely why Pisa was chosen: a city that has always been avant-garde, ‘rebellious’, open to the world and never closed by territorial or ideological boundaries.
Tastings, round tables and master classes with winemakers will be followed by concerts, DJ sets, informal debates and moments of pure relaxation!
The organisers’ aim is to bring as many people as possible closer to conscious drinking: “We are firmly convinced that natural wines should not be an elitist prerogative, but a daily choice for many. This is why we have decided to call ViniPendenti a festival and not a fair, trying to bring out not only the ‘technical’ elements of natural wine, but also the convivial aspect, the purest aspect of being together” say Matteo Niccolai, Leonello Trivelli and Claudio Benedetti.
The idea stems from the desire to create an enjoyable and fun moment around natural wine.
ViniPendenti – the first natural wine festival in Pisa – will take place on the 18th – 20th of March at the Stazione Leopolda, with tastings each day from 10:30am to 6:30pm, and almost 70 winemakers from all over Italy.
