2002 1 Julio


Some of the world's best jazz musicians will return to Italy's rural Tuscany this year to perform concerts under the stars, once again accompanied by the wines of Castello Banfi.


The Montalcino wine estate, long a sponsor of the wildly popular Villa Celimontana Jazz Festival in Rome, initiated a spin-off festival five years ago in the Tuscan hilltop town's medieval fortress. Dubbed an immediate success, the concerts ranging from traditional to jazz fusion return to the hills of Tuscany once again this year, with the wines of Castello Banfi being poured as the beverage of choice. Nine nightly concerts will run from the 11th through the 21st of July, starting each night at 10 p.m. and wrapping up around midnight.


Two special evenings (July 17 and 18) will be dedicated to performances by local Tuscan groups and the first-ever "Castello Banfi Award for Jazz" will presented to local artists in recognition of their contribution to local culture and to celebrate the magical combination of music, wine and Montalcino's spectacular concert setting.
