"Pontassieve has a lot to offer its citizens and those who want to discover and get to know our territory" - says the mayor Monica Marini - "and with this event we intend to enhance some of our excellence: wine and our landscapes, first of all, but also an attitude towards quality hospitality. Now there are many initiatives that the Administration carries out with the precious contribution of the different realities of the territory, with the aim of ensuring that Pontassieve is recognized as a place of widespread sociality and culture. For this reason I am very happy with the fruitful collaboration that has been created between the Administration and the Chianti Rufina Consortium, with which we have built this event and we intend to build others. "

The Chianti Rufina Consortium welcomed the invitation from the Municipality of Pontassieve to collaborate on these initiatives. " - so the president of the Consortium Cesare Coda Nunziante, who continues: “The combination of Music, Art and Wine has always been a winner, but never as now do we see its positive message. The willingness of the wineries to start again is great, as is the strong desire to make known and rediscover the beauty of our vineyards, our hills and the attention that each of us profound in the care and management of the territory. To enhance all this, the synergy with the local administrations is of fundamental importance and highly appreciated. "
