Wine Windows Used During The Black Plague Are Re-Opening For COVID-19

These windows are called “Buchette del Vino,” which are actually relics from the city’s ancient history and were used to give merchants to pass wine through a small hole to avoid contact with clients during the Black Plague that affected Florence in the 1600s.

Now that Florence and around the world are experiencing another pandemic, wine windows are coming back. Around Florence and Tuscany, wine windows are opening again to help people access food and drinks while socially distancing.

The Buchette del Vino Associazione, which is a cultural association dedicated to cataloging all the wine windows, even has a map on their website showing the locations of the windows.

If you are going to Tuscany, go visit a wine window. You’ll be socially distancing and also enjoy the past tradition!

 

Here are just a few of the wine windows. Awesome!
