Falling stars, wine + street food= Calici di Stelle 2016

From August 6 to 14 it is time to celebrate San Lorenzo and to enjoy the Perseids yearly falling stars while sipping a glass of wine. The Perseids are a meteor shower visible from mid-July each year, with the peak in activity during early August. Great tours, tastings, special dinners and exhibits will be held during the most evocative and romantic summer nights of Calici di Stelle organized by "Movimento turismo del vino" and "Città del Vino". This year some wineries offer a very special menu: high quality street food and of course the best Tuscan wine!
