If you are visiting Abruzzo in October, you may pick up the words sagre delle castagne or castagnata – which refers to a dedicated chestnut festival which is one of the many harvests and reasons to make a beeline to Abruzzo in the Autumn.
Cantine nella Roccia is a 3-day open cellar extravaganza held in stunning Tagliacozzo (AQ) every October, which celebrates the local harvests and lets you sample traditional,tasty dishes and wines as you explore the town
It was almost a case of “olived-out” courtesy of the omnipresent olive-based conversations, that is until an olive sagra down in San Vincenzo Valle Roveto!
Needin’ the nuts? We recommend the chestnut (castagne) festa in Senarica di Crognaleto, Abruzzo on the 3rd or 4th weekend of October depending on harvesting
