Often, Milan is labeled as the city of cocktails, mixology and the gin and tonic. But there is actually much more. Milano loves wine - that is why there are a lot of events, meetings, bars, people who talk about wine. Wine is always the center of attention in this scene: natural, biological, biodynamic - words all that bet on a sustainable viticulture.
Indeed, events about oenology currently multiply. Let's think about Milano Wine week. Producers, consortia, wine lovers all reunited in one week only. From Bottiglie Aperte to Franciacorta Festival, Milano turns into a cult location of wine, dividing the city in six districts dedicated to six different wine-making unions.
Moreover, not so long ago, an urban canteen has been opened along Navigli area. Cantina Urbana (Urban Canteen literally) is a real canteen where wine is produced from grapes until the end of its making process. Bottles are prepared and sold in Milano as well. San Colombano wine, produced in San Colombano al Lambro, between the cities of Pavia and Lodi, has contributed to enrich Milano wine-making offer. Thus Lombardia is not just Franciacorta, Valtellina and Garda Lake, Milano can talk about its wines too.
