Bolgheri Melody: not just wine and music

Bolgheri's cypress lane

Among the most famous views in Tuscany are its cypress-lined roads. One of the most renowned leads to the beautiful medieval hilltop village of Bolgheri, on the Etruscan Coast, celebrated for its excellent wines. The vineyards spread out, running from the Tuscan coast towards the hills, over an area which was once under the dominion of the Etruscans. Tuscany Holiday Rent offers a wide selection of holiday accommodations on the Etruscan Coast where one can explore the neighbourhood, savouring precious wines and excellent dishes, as well as participating to cultural events.


Among those in programme this summer, the appointment with Bolgheri Melody created by the commune of Castagneto Carducci, in which Bolgheri is located, and the DOC wine producers of this area, with the will to create both a cultural event and an original moment of entertainment. Bolgheri Melody is not simply a Festival, it is the union of the knowledge of generations of vine-growers, who have contributed to the myth of Bolgheri’s great wine, together with the echoes of the precious words of Nobel prize winner Giosuè Carducci, that today still resound in the places that gave him hospitality.

Bolgheri Melody is the natural course that unites wine and nobility, show and culture, poetry and magic on the Etruscan Coast. All the charm of a unique place in the appointments of this year’s events. An excellent début on the 9th July with La Scala Theatre Ballet and its “Midsummer’s Night Dream”, the calendar proceeds until the 4th August with concerts, music icon Brian Ferry on the 28th July and Italian rock star Gianna Nannini on the 30th just to name a couple, the Genesis Tribute by Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Ballet on the 16th, talk shows with popular Italian actors, wine tasting and piano concertos on the 2nd August with “Liszt in the Night” and ending up with Léhar’s “The Merry Widow” by the Opera House of Parma’s choir on the 4th.

Concluding with the Bolgheri Melody Award, a prize conceived by the Bolgheri DOC wine producers and consecrated to an artist who also produces wine, one can well admit that here outstanding wine combines with an excellent show and high-quality culture.
