Comprising the villages of Calepio, Tagliuno, Cividino and Quintano, at the head of the eponymous valley, the Municipality of Castelli Calepio has always organized events associated with the world of wine, such as the Calici di Stelle, or “Chalices of Stars”, created in collaboration with the Wine Tourism Movement and the City of Wine.

It is an event that, every year, is a huge public success.

The town also prides itself on its beautiful medieval centre, and the Castle of the Calepio Counts, which has been documented since the early Middle Ages.

With a resident population of over 10,000 and a strategic position for discovering the hilly area, local food and wine excellences, and the welcome offered by numerous rural accommodation facilities.
