Via dei Brentatori
#particonnoi - #viadeibrentatori
The Via dei Brentatori is one of the few wine roads that can boast about its ancient and documented history. We are in fact, in the year 1250, where the modenese troops rage, for political and military reasons, with their raids along the border of the contado bolognese, making the roads of the lowlands unsafe. So the municipality of Bologna decides to build a new route through the hills, to transport into the city, through the “Brente”, long and curved baskets that the transporters (which were called Brentatori) carried on their backs, filled of wine and must, produced at Monteveglio and Oliveto, the places that you
will reach during this trip. Which is more than just
a simple walk. In fact, you will have the chance to taste the best wines and to visit the local farms, to test not only your physical strength but also
your skills of sommelier, just like the Brentatori were profound connoisseurs of this product.
