Campania is famous around the world for its astonishing landscapes and deep blue sea dotted with the fabled islands on which, ancient tradition would have it, the Sirens dwelt and sang their songs to lure sailors to their doom. But just a few kilometers inland from Naples a true wine paradise awaits for those seeking a different off-the-beaten-track Italy: Irpinia.
Do not miss the opportunity to taste just the best our region has to offer in term of DOC wines: Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo, Falanghina and Taurasi.
A full day escorted tour through the best wine cellars of the Southern Italy.
Departure from your hotel by GT coach for a pleasant journey to Taurasi, the capital of Campania red wine, set in the green Irpinia, the Campania countryside, comparable to Chianti shine in Tuscany. You will be welcomed in one of the most spectacular wineries in Campania: walking astonished between tens of thousands of bottles arranged in recesses extracted from the stones walls and wine oaks. The owner founded his company pushed by an irrepressible desire to give voice to the history and traditions of his loved Taurasi. The distinctive trait of his spectacular winery is soon clear walking by the numerous fascinating small tunnels: it is not just a place in which barrels, bottles and vats are stored but a real museum of the viticulture. In every corner, on each wall and in the multiples recesses obtained from the stones walls, it is possible to see typical tools and utensils used by the winemakers. Together with the tools and the barrels, you can find a variety of wood, glass and stone artworks, some realized by the owner himself and some others given as a gift by artist friends. They make the atmosphere even more evocative.
After vineyard and cellar visit with wine tasting, you are invited in the company Agriturismo for a light lunch with local specialties.
Return to the hotel in the late afternoon.
