Vineyard & Cantina Amalfi Coast
Join Italy’s award-winning wine maker for an up close vineyard tour, cantina visit and hands-on cooking class followed by a wine pairing lunch. On this Amalfi Coast wine tour, you will learn about the famous family of winemakers, the grape varieties and history that dates back to Tiberio, the Roman Emperor who came to this land to make his wine!
Our tour starts out through the vineyard perched on a hill and overlooking the sea. You will discover the wine makers’ special way of growing and harvesting grapes on vertical slopes, while walking along the rocky volcanic soil. Sea and mountains blend in this magical landscape filled with vineyards and farmers.
These Amalfi Coast wines have been labeled ‘Extreme Wines’ in recognition of the superhuman effort required to tend and harvest grapes in such conditions: extremely hot summers and extremely cold winters. The wine makers here grow ancient grape varieties such as Fenile, Piedirosso, Ginestra, Pepella, Ripolo, Tintore, Tronto and Sciascinoso. Thanks to their passion and tenacity, these ancient grape varieties are pressed then aged into exceptional award-winning wines. When these wines are paired with the the Amalfi Coast’s fresh fish, organic vegetables, grass-fed meats and artisan cheeses, it’s a combination only nature has to offer.
