For most couples, the walk down or wait at the aisle is an elemental part of their wedding day. Perhaps you imagine it happening in a ceremony at church or the sleek setting of a cosmopolitan town hall. But imagine a different backdrop for a moment – rows upon rows of vines, the sweet scent of sun-ripened grapes, and the whistle of olive trees in the wind.
In his 17 AD work “The Art of Love”, the Roman poet Ovid writes that wine “warms the blood, adds luster to the eyes”, and that “wine and love have ever been allies”. Where better to declare your love, then, than amid the tender landscape of an Italian vineyard? From the northern hills of Piedmont to the rolling hills of Tuscany, we’ve picked the most enviable spots to get married within some of Italy’s most beautiful wineries.
