'de vinea'

…was founded in the year 2001, with the aim of exploring the early musical and poetical repertoire of Italian Duecento, adventuring in a mainly unexplored field of interaction between poetry and its musical attire. The historical field of research soon expanded to include a wider spectrum of repertoire, including the whole of the late Middle Ages. The musicians come from different fields, but have in common a specialization on the field of medieval music – careful academic research about the repertoire as well as the instruments and the performance practice give a stable theoretical background to the lively concerts.

'de vinea'
Latin: …from the vineyard, of the vineyard.
Since ancient times the vineyard is a symbol of overwhelming richness: it rules the rhythm of the seasons in the Mediterranean area – after long and patient, thorough work throughout the year, the harvest is the main ritual event, a feast for everybody.
