October - Capoliveri

This celebration takes weeks to prepare, and gets thousands of visitors every year; it is dedicated to the past ways of grape harvesting, the traditions, the flavours and the scents once unique to the Island of Elba.

The tradition is that the four quarters of Capoliveri - Il Fosso (ditch), La Fortezza (Fortress), Il Baluardo (Rampart), and La Torre (Tower) - challenge eachother in games and competitions.

At the end of the three days of celebrations, a prize is given to those who had the best setting representing the old farming traditions. Grapes, wine and Capoliveri traditions are renewed year after year in one of the most beautiful traditional Elba festivals.
