Depart from your Naples hotel in a private, air-conditioned vehicle destined for Irpinia, a wine region cradled by the Apennine Mountains. Receive a fascinating introduction to the winemaking traditions of the area from your expert sommelier and learn about why Irpinia has become one of Italy’s leading wine regions.
Stop first at an acclaimed winery in the Taurasi region to explore its bounteous vineyards; discover how the refined varietals are grown and then descend to the atmospheric cellar to discover the secrets behind complex production methods. Next, pleasure you palate with three separate varietal samples and educate your tastebuds to recognize the subtle flavors and aromas of each wine.
Travel onward to Montemiletto, a rural village where you can enjoy a rustic lunch at your own expense. Sated, continue to the provincial Feudi di San Gregorio estate to tour the vineyards and subterranean cellars. Savor more unique flavors during a tasting session and then return to the vehicle for the relaxing drive back to Naples, where the tour concludes.
