Pictures from the event organized by gli estremi del vino on Saturday, March 8.
The event took place in the awesome medieval church of Saint Anthony, in Breno (Brescia), in the Alpine region. This valley was inhabited since the early Neolithic. During the Iron Age the Camuni, a mountain people of obscure origins, were among the greatest producers of rock art in Europe. And apparently they were also excellent winemakers, as the Greek historian Strabo (63/64 BC–ca. 24 AD) describes them, after the Roman conquest:
“Next, in order, come those parts of the mountains that are towards the east, and those that bend round towards the south: the Rhaeti and the Vindelicioccupy them. Now the Rhaeti reach down as far as that part of Italy which is above Verona and Comum. Moreover, the “Rhaetic” wine, which has the repute of not being inferior to the approved wines of the Italic regions, is made in the foothills of the Rhaetic Alps.”
