Collisioni 2017 - The AgriRock Festival in Barolo

Written by Monica Bizzini on 30 June 2017

 width=Coming to its eighth edition, the Collisioni Festival has grown over the years for its innovative formula. Today, it is considered by international critics the best festival that combines literature, music, cinema and food and wine in the suggestive setting of Barolo and the Langhe.

From Friday 14 to Monday, July 17, the  small village on the top of the hills turns into an open air non-stop stage that hosts debates with writers, journalists, actors, in an informal atmosphere of constant dialogue with the public. Concerts take place in the main square of the village, a natural amphitheater surrounded by the vineyards of Barolo wine.

It’s been four years since Collisioni has integrated its artistic, literary and musical proposal with a project devoted to Italian food and wine culture: the Collisioni Wine Project, created and directed by the writer and wine expert Ian D’agata. A number of great wine expert will take part in a series of tastings, wine cellar visits, tours, walk-around tasting, lunches and dinners with producers and consortia to let them live Piedmontese and Italian wines.

We will be there too. You can taste our Roero Arneis throughout the event at the Roero Wine Bar, in Falletti Square in front of the castle, and we will also be present at some tasting events that involve the participation of several national and international critics.

Take a look at the whole program at Collisioni site, including directions to reach the various squares (a continuous shuttle service will be available).
