Monterado, Le Marche, Italy

We are currently working on plans for our next Festivaldelgusto to be held at the Castello di Monterado in Marche on Sunday 27th September. This years festival will be bigger than ever with over twenty producers taking part and we will also be inviting leaders of Slow Food groups in the UK, USA, Holland and Malta.

There will also be a repeat of last years popular olive oil school workshop and talks hosted by some of the local olive oil producers in the Marche region. There will also be free tutorial wine tasting and of course the possibility to taste all the great products on display included some Slow Food presidia from both Le Marche in Italy  and Anglia in Enlgand thanks to the new partnership we set up with them.

The event on Sunday the 27th will be starting at 4:30pm allowing one hour for our guests to arrive and introduce themselves.

5:30pm There will be a welcoming aperitif and a small introduction about the Festival and its main aims and purposes with a small presentation from our guests and hosts with a short description of the evening.
