From June 28 to July 26, 2015, the Monferrato will be hosting the 6th edition of Bacco&Bach, an international chamber music festival paired with wine tastings.
Music and wine – a classic pairing – can both give incredible experiences, but you need the right time and atmosphere to fully appreciate them. The Monferrato, land of authentic tastes and slow living, is the ideal setting to host Bacco & Bach, the International Music Festival where chamber music is paired with wine tastings to discover one of the Monferrato's most important products in the relaxing atmosphere of elegant music.
Let us tell you a story...
The festival is designed as Transmedia Storytelling: a single narrative told through various media that evolves at each step of its user experience according to the specificity and uniqueness of each medium.
And the narrators of this story are ones of excellence: music, wine, and location emerge for a total and engaging experience. Each year, the location for the festival is carefully chosen according to its beauty and centrality to the territory to best let guests discover it. The most representative wines are selected, from the newest wineries to the most established and old Cantine, in an effort to spread the culture of the DOC and enjoyable drinking, as well as promoting the image, history, and culture of the Monferrato.
The musical events are also somewhat tied to the territory, as the location of the concerts is chosen based on suggestive, authentic places in the Monferrato, from charming courtyards to ancient palazzi, little theaters, villas, and castles. Overall, it is a 360° experience with selected locations, high artistic quality, and excellent wines.
Unique music for every glass!
The festival offers a packed schedule with concerts in the early evening and pairing of the music program to one or more wine tastings. At each appointment, guests will be able to discover a different wine that is symbolic of the area, for a listening and tasting experience. Before each concert, there will be a short listening and tasting guide and presentation. Bacco & Bach, in fact, is intended not only for experts and connoisseurs of the genre but also for amateurs, beginners and anyone who wishes to take this opportunity to taste and relax in the Monferrato.
