Music resounds, by season with concerts and summer’s Montalcino “Wine & Jazz” festival, initiated by Castello Banfi il Borgo_ in 1998.
The “Jazz & Wine in Montalcino” festival is certainly one of the most prestigious jazz events in Italy – the excellence of music, wine and foods. The festival was founded with the help of Castello Banfi, a member of the Hotel Relais Consortium and exclusive winery of Montalcino, deeply bound to the territory and its traditions.
Leading Jazz musicians from around the globe gather to serenade aficionado and novice alike enjoying fine wines in the suggestive environment of the medieval fortress and its civic counterpart in the nearby village of Montalcino. The month-long summer festival also has an abbreviated winter version, and occasional classical music concerts are planned as well.
