Tour available from 01/04/2017 to 31/10/2017
Andrea, a winemaker from Riomaggiore, follows the wine-growing traditions handed down over generations.
He takes you on a unique and interesting wine tour. The tasting consists of two different wines offering you a complete new gustatory experience – very natural wines, produced respecting the vineyard and the earth, without the use of chemical products, sulfites and yeasts. The results are intense wines which, through their scents and flavors, will transmit you the special characteristics of the place where they have grown – rocks, sea, herbs… These are authentic wines that symbolize both past and future – because this is the way the ancestors produced the wine in the past, but wines rich in history and character will impress the future too.
In the morning you take a bus and reach Andrea at the starting point and together you will walk on a little trail into his vineyard. This is a special panoramic place with a great view over the steep Cinque Terre coast. Andrea will explain you his wine growing methods – respecting the vineyard and the earth, without the use of chemical products.
Skilful and with sensitivity he combines modern methods with ancient equipment as the terra-cotta amphorae. During the explanation of his wine making methods you will taste his natural and intense wines which, through their scents and flavours, will transmit you the special characteristics of the place where they have grown – rocks, sea, herbs… The wine tasting is accompanied by typical Ligurian focaccia bread.
