American expat insight into Italy's fabulous "Five Lands"

 On Saturday, July 22nd, the 5th annual Sciacchetrà Festival will be held in Riomaggiore. For those that don’t know, sciacchetrà (pronounced shock-keh-trah) is a highly prized local dessert wine made from select partially dried grapes (more details on sciacchetrà and other local specialties can be found here). The festival in Riomaggiore has events that take place throughout the day (see the flier above).  Of most interest to those who do not speak Italian will be the drop-in visits (starting at 4pm) at participating cantine to see where the wine is made as well as the stands with local wines and products (that will open on Piazza del Vignaiolo at 6pm).
