When Montepulciano meets Blues .. a uniquely atmospheric event
'Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Blues' has met with growing success over the years due to the innovative decision to marry Blues and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wine, one of the region’s excellent products.
In the villages in Val Vibrata, under the magical stars on summer nights the warm, moving notes of Blues meet Abruzzo wines, especially Montepulciano d’Abruzzo one of the land’s true riches.
The event takes place in various villages in the Teramo province, including Controguerra, Nereto, Corropoli, Torano Nuovo and Colonnella: the 'Val Vibrata villages', where the historic centres come to life with the displays and samples organized by local wine cellars, simple tastings or under the guidance of local sommeliers, and with food stands offering the best specialities of Abruzzo street food and, above all, the fantastic national and international Blues musicians who perform in this fascinating setting.
The event has the noble aim of bringing 'Blues to Val Vibrata and taking Montepulciano d’Abruzzo around the world, inspired by the basic principles of the Slow Food Movement', and we can rightly say that they fully succeed during the evenings of the event, which numerous visitors flock to every year from Italy and beyond.

A date not to be missed, but to be enjoyed in these amazingly beautiful locations with exceptional wine and food and the incredible international artists, where you experience a truly unique event.
