Wine Barrel Race - Corsa delle Botti

Last update 24 May 2023

Second weekend of June - June 8th and 9th 2019

The Wine Barrel Race is an event which reminds of a 19th century tradition. At the time the barrel artesans' apprentices used to deliver the barrels, rolling them down the streets. They so gave birth to a real competition, to which winery firms and winemakers from Nizza Monferrato and the surrounding villages take part. The competition takes place in the streets of our Old Town: an amazing show, both for locals and tourists who follow the race every year.


The race qualifications take place on Saturday evening, while the real competition is on Sunday afternoon.
