The second edition of the event "Verrà Scalza - Festival of poetry of the hills" is scheduled in Castiglione Tinella. The appointment is for Saturday 23 September at 4pm with meeting in the central Piazza XX Settembre; the program includes a walk towards the terrace in the vineyard overlooking the poetry of the literary park "The year between the rows", followed by the tourist harvest of the last row of Moscato grapes and the rapulè, The Sinoira snack will offer participants the Moscato focaccia from the Verderame tavern, cheese with honey and hazelnuts, grape turnip and soma d'aj, crostini and cugnà, then the hazelnut Contessine and the wines from the Castiglionese Moscato wine shop.

Following the trace of the verse in the vineyard "Verrà Scalza" which gives the festival its name, there will be the grape pressing competition, which consists of not losing your balance and remaining in the vat until the grapes are all pressed!
