Gain unique insight into the lifestyle of the inhabitants of the ancient town. Then, take a guided tour of the vineyards on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, and experience the passion of Sorrentino wines, with viticulture in their DNA. Learn about the origins of the wines. Hear about their unique characteristics from the sunburnt ground, and fertilized with periodical lava flows. Discover the story of wines like “Lacryma Christi”, written by the hand of nature at her most violent. It’s a story that has gone on for decades, thanks to a tenacious family that knew how to support a territory rich in precious fruit. After exploring the vineyards on the “violent” slopes, relax over a delicious Mediterranean lunch, served with wines of the region, such as “Falanghina,” “Lacryma Christi,” “Aglianico” and many other renowned varieties.
