Cantine Aperte is the most famous wine tourism event in all of Italy that involves the wineries that are part of the Wine Tourism Movement. The event was born in 1993 by Magda Antonioli and Donatella Cinelli Colombini, with the aim of introducing wine lovers or those who simply wanted to spend a day different from the usual, how the product that is on our tables is born so much so that the slogan of early years was "See What You Drink". In this way the cellar gives rise off limits, it becomes not only a place of production, but a pleasant destination for visits, and a resource for the territory. In addition to tasting wines, buying them, it is possible to enter the cellars to understand the processes and processing.

Among the various wineries there are also some in Umbria where we can identify some Docg wines in the areas of Montefalco and Torgiano; while the Doc in the areas of Assisi, Colli Altotiberini, Colli del Trasimeno, Colli Martani, Colli Perugini, Orvieto, Spoleto, Montefalco, Todi and Torgiano. In Montefalco and in the surrounding municipalities, it will be possible to taste the Sagrantino Docg which contributes to the various merits acquired by Umbria as a producer of fine wines. This event is also an opportunity to go to Tenuta Castelbuono and admire "Il Carapace" by Arnaldo Pomodoro.

Cantine Aperte is the one-day party that has changed the daily life of wine for both the producer and the consumer.
