Throughout the opening concert of the Jazz&Wine, on July 12th at Castello Banfi, there will be held a show of design artworks realized by six worldwide famous designers who worked in collaboration with Tuscan marble and metal leader producers during the “Montalcino Wine and Design Week”. Designers’ works - also exhibited at the OCRA location in Montalcino and Castello Banfi during the days of the festival - will be sold at the auction sale in London during the Fashion & Design Week next September. This project is the result of the collaboration among Banfi, Matter of Stuff (a London based design platform, established in 2014 by the architects Simona Autieri and Sofia Steffenoni) and OCRA (Officina Creativa dell'Abitare, an art and culture laboratory and a solid reference point in Montalcino where are raised up talents and ideas connected to the territory).

For the nineteenth consecutive year two such intimate and intense pleasures, jazz music and great wine, come together to celebrate the growing success with their fans in Montalcino, the emblematic city of Brunello.

The pairing of Jazz&Wine in Montalcino with two of Italy's oldest Italian Jazz&Wine festivals, Zola Jazz&Wine and Jazz&Wine of Peace (Cormòns), has been renewed, offering a unique opportunity to compare diverse areas and producers that bear a common passion for great jazz. 

The festival is also a tribute to the memory of the beloved Giampiero Rubei, creator, heart and soul of Jazz&Wine. His music dream continues through the hands and the ideas of his son, Paolo Rubei, who has become the festival Art Director after him.
