Perbacco is the grape harvest festival that takes place in Bellinzona at the beginning of September.
It is not only an event dedicated to wine and our traditions, but also an opportunity for locals and tourists to visit the characteristic old town, in the shadow of the castles, a Unesco heritage site.
The official start of the event is on Friday evening, and the day on Saturday will also be enlivened by the characteristic and traditional Saturday morning market.
On Saturday afternoon, there will be a tasting of the region’s wines in the streets of the city.
Throughout the weekend during the event, 3 wine bars of the ‘Perbacco’ association will be in operation, where no fewer than 75 wines from the region can be tasted.
There will also be 4 refreshment stands with typical gastronomic specialities.
A total of 30 different musical groups on 4 stages, as well as itinerant bands, will enliven the event.
Bellinzona can be easily reached from Ponte Tresa by public transport, which is always free during your stay thanks to the Ticino Ticket.
