Collio international Jazz festival with local wine tasting, food, traditions and historic houses.
A special tour during the annual Jazz & Wine of Peace Festival which boasts international artists and emerging talents, as well as an opportunity to discover the Collio region and visit the elegant town of Gorizia.
Every year the Collio ‘stops’ as if almost bewitched, and transforms into a land of music, encounters, nature & landscapes as it hosts an international Jazz festival.
This corner of Friuli Venezia Giulia, already known for its eno-gastronomic offerings, its historical & cultural diversity, and its natural beauty are further enhanced during this week of Jazz music. For the last twenty years more than 90 musicians have been gathering in the Collio for a festival organized in the name of Jazz, synonymous with freedom, sharing, languages meeting and the breaking down of barriers.
This tour includes international artists, emerging talents, fringe events, evening concerts, and guided tours to discover the beauty of the surrounding scenery. The meetings and tour routes are aimed at discovering the history and landscapes, vineyards, cellars, historic houses and unique sites of the Collio.
