The magical night of San Lorenzo is approaching, on August 10, for many years and throughout Italy dedicated to Goblets of Stars, the manifestation of City of Wine, a party under the stars, tasting tables with producers and a large crowd to taste: an impossible format in the year of the Coronavirus.

Because of its characteristics, many locations have decided to cancel the event. The Vernaccia di San Gimignano Wine Consortium and l 'City administration instead they made a different choice, they wanted to confirm the event and devised a new formula that guarantees respect for safety: a message of positivity, a desire for recovery, support for the city of Saint Gimignano and to all wine producers.

So Calici di Stelle 2020 in San Gimignano will be held and will be organized in the same location in recent years, in the threshing floor of the Rock of Montestaffoli, a terrace on one of the most beautiful panoramas in Tuscany, where visitors can book a tasting station at tables at a safe distance, where you can taste six Vernaccia di San Gimignano docg wines with local gastronomic products with the guidance of expert sommeliers . The tastings will last an hour, three sessions are scheduled from 19pm to 23pm, 'apericena', 'sunset in the farmyard' and 'tasting under the stars', and will be accompanied by the notes of a harp. Quoting Dante and the Divine Comedy, 'And so we went out to see the stars' will be the theme of the 2020 edition, a different event, where distancing and security are combined with pleasantness, serenity and good wine!
