Above: When people talk about their visits to the Monastery of San Pietro in Lamosa in Provaglio d’Iseo, just a few minutes down the road from the Barone Pizzini winery, they often use words like “breathtaking” and “unforgettable.” That’s one of the 11th-century monastery’s frescos, above (image via Jorsym’s Flickr).

Earlier this week, we posted on Barone Pizzini’s monthly guided visit to the amazing Monastery of San Pietro in Lamosa.

(There are still spaces available for this Sunday’s visit; click here for reservation details.)

For those who have never visited Franciacorta and the village of Provaglio d’Iseo (where the monastery and the Barone Pizzini winery are both located), it’s hard to understand the role that the monastery plays in the lives of locals.

Not only is it known for its immense beauty and the picturesque landscape that surrounds it, it’s also a cultural hub that — for centuries — has been the lifeblood of the community.

Last year, for example, the monastery was the host to an important international conference on organic farming practices.

On Tuesday, December 3, 2013, the monastery will host a presentation of the Slow Food Slow Wine Guide 2014 and a tasting featuring Franciacorta wineries mentioned in the guide. Details follow.
