Vesuvius Wine Tour
Rate valid from Amalfi, Positano, Praiano, Ravello or Sorrento.
This is a story of a family, talking about passion. A family with viticulture in the DNA, a land buried by the sun and heated by the periodic lava flows, a vine whose origins are legendary. The Lacryma Christi and other great Volcaninc wines story is written by a gorgeous and wild nature and by an enthusiastic family who knows since a long time how to pamper this land growing its precious fruits. The azienda, owning to the same family since 1800, is nowadays owned by Paolo and his son Giuseppe, who dedicate their lives to the family's wine yards and to the wine-making art. Departure in the morning from Amalfi Coast, drive to Boscoreale. The beautiful azienda we have selected for the wine tasting lies just down the Vesuvius, offering breathtaking views over the Volcano and the surroundings till the sea. Introduction to the Volcanic wines, the story of the wine cellar and the legends about Lacryma Christy. Visit of the wineyards and lecture about grapes growing methods. After the visit stop at the casolare for wine tasting and country lunch cooked with local specialties.
