On the last weekend of May, Italy’s wine cellars will be open to visitors.

The sight of hillsides strewn with vineyards is one that is repeated throughout Italy, and one that is notably celebrated each May in the form of the Movimento Turismo del Vino’s Cantine Aperte (Open Cellars) initiative.

This year, Italy’s primary wine tourism event will take place over the weekend of the 27th and 28th of the month, when wine-makers up and down the country will open their doors to visitors and share some of their secrets – and, of course, their wine.
