The jewel-village of the Val d’Arda on Nov. 19 and 20 is hosting the event


Vigoleno is a fortified village, currently a hamlet of the municipality of Vernasca. Only in its territory are grown the grapes used for the production of Vin Santo di Vigoleno, one of the 17 DOC wines of the Piacenza area.

The end of the year, having finished harvesting and the first stages of winemaking, lends itself to celebrating the fruits of labor. The Vinoleno festival celebrates not only the local wine but also other passito wines from the area.
