The Associazione Culturale Giulia Falletti di Barolo presents

30 european terroir wineproducers
December 4th & 5th, in the Barolo Castle
To taste and purchase

Dear corsairs,

We are pleased to welcome you to the fourth edition of Vini Corsari (“Corsair Wines”): a gathering of 30 European wineproducers in the Castello Comunale Faletti di Barolo. These producers share an artisanal approach to wine, defending the value of terroir through environmentally sustainable viticulture and practices, patiently forged through generations of work in a collective and ethical way.

This is the 4th time the village of Barolo will host a tasting of producers from regions and countries beyond Barolo, invinting the public to discover the wines from new terroirs in the prestigious and symbolic setting of the village Castle. Our goal is to stimulate intercultural dialogue between producers and the public.

Why “Vini Corsari”?

The name “Vini Corsari” refers to the work of Pier Paolo Pasolini: “Scritti-Corsari” (Corsair Writings). This event is a tribute to the writer, who in this work – a collection of thematic articles written 40 years ago – condemned cultural homogenization and the loss of local cultural diversity in Italy, and also denounced consumer society, the slave of trends. Pasolini, also passionate about wine, defended authenticity without artifice, feeling himself close to the rustic simplicity of the rural world.

Separate from labels (such as organic, biodynamic or natural), this wine experience encourages us to discover the wines at their source, where there is a concrete idea of the place, the territory and its history; those producers who appreciate being able to lead us into the their physical and temporal dimensions, beyond their certifications or labels.

The “Corsair” theme draws from the dimension of travel and discovery, with a challenging, goliardic spirit!
