The wine tour in Riomaggiore – hiking and wine tasting!
Andrea, a young winemaker from Riomaggiore, follows the wine-growing traditions handed down over generations. He takes you on a unique and interesting half day wine tour.
In the morning you meet Andrea in the centre of Riomaggiore and together you will reach Montenero, high above the village, from where you 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. After the visit you will come back to Riomaggiore to Andrea’s little wine cellar. 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.
