On October 29th and 31st, 2022, Tenute Ugolini will present Hallowine, an event dedicated to wine and stories, the ideal solution for an amazing afternoon with your friends.
Firepits, stories, and mysteries will accompany an event that will make you rediscover the legends of the Valpolicella, naturally with a glass of our finest Valpolicella. Moreover, at the end of the evening, we will offer a tasty pumpkin risotto, the icing on the cake of a marvellous day.
Halloween is getting closer, and we can guess you have more invites for theme parties than days of the week to actually attend them. We know, the true fans have been waiting for the whole year, a unique occasion to spend an evening having fun with your friends. But how can you choose the perfect party, not to disappoing anyone’s expectations?
Easy: you need to focus on quality.
For that reason, Tenute Ugolini have organized for you a truly unforgettable evening, to celebrate Halloween with style, without giving up on the quality of the wine. Forget overcrowded clubs or disappointing bars, Hallowine will keep all its promises.
Halloween night has been imported to Italy through the anglophone world and, more specifically, from the celtic calendar. On this occasion all the people got together to celebrate the starting of winter. With all the provisions for the cold season taken care of, and the animals well-fed from the summer grazing, people finally had time to actually rest and celebrate together the abundance given by the gods. The main theme of these celebrations? Death.
It might seem macabre, but if you think about it, if spring is rebirth, then winter is all about nature taking a break, to start again stronger a couple of months later. The Halloween tradition stems from this celebration of death, with its gloomy masks and the symbolic firepits.
Naturally, us at Tenute Ugolini have no intention of choosing death as our main theme. However, deep inside, we are all fascinated by the ancient legends, those stories passed on through generations to scare children and warn off nosy people. It’s for this reason that we chose to organize this evening, with great attention to details, so that you may live a truly unique experience.
Hallowine: discover the event program.
Let yourselves be taken awayby an astonishing set, thought to make you go back in time, to one of those cold winter nights in which the farmers stayed together to share a warm meal. Our carved pumpkins will not only scare away the spirits thought to wander Earth on Halloween but will also guide you to the firepits. At the end, is there a better way to tell a scary story than being all together huddled around a fireplace? Us at Tenute Ugolini will rise to the occasion to tell you all about the most wonderful stories and legends from the Valpolicella area. Tales of Cimbri, Anguane and the traditional figure of the Bisso Galeto will creep you out while you taste a special glass of Valpolicella, brewed in one of our organic vineyards.
Each tale is linked to one vineyard and, consequently to a wine, that you will be able to appreciate while you listen to the legend told by our staff (who will naturally be in costume). Our vineyards, which have been taken care of for generations, will be the protagonists of the evening twice. The first time as a legend which will help you discover an unknown side of our beloved Valpolicella, and the second for the best thing they have to offe: our amazing Tenute Ugolini wine. Be it classic, Ripasso or Amarone, our Valpolicella will be able to surprise you, and to satisfy even the most demanding palate, thanks to its qualities and the aromas, with the careful processing that brings it on your table years later. We are used to drink wine, but how often do we stop and think about the vineyards who make it possible?
At the end, it’s thanks to these vineyards that we can get our high quality wine. Different characteristics of the soil, different altitudes and – above all – different exposure to the elements make our grapes ripen with unique qualities. San Michele, Pozzetto, Monte Solane, Valle Alta, and Valle Lena are all vineyards farmed with 100% organic methods. The ancient wisdom of our grandparents, passed on through generations, has arrived to the modern day, teaching us how to care for and – above all – respect the times of nature.
At the end of the wine-tasting, when the sun leaves the sky to make space for the darkness, and you can start to admire the first stars, we will serve a pumpkin risotto, to end our evening the best way possible. Between the wine tasting, the stories and legends about the Valpolicel,la area and the risotto dinner, us from Tenute Ugolini will offer you a different evening, with quality entertainment and food and drinks of the best quality.
