Overview
Intrigued by our title? Wine here is truly a life experience, and the heroes that made and are still making wine in this incredibly difficult terrain are following their ancestors' practices handed down since the 1300s. Wine is the historical and cultural heart of the Cinque Terre, and this tour offers one of the only ways to visit a working wine cellar in the Cinque Terre and taste their wine directly in the vineyard overlooking the sea. This unique opportunity is combined with the chance to do a second wine tasting with a professional sommelier with unparalleled experience in Cinque Terre wines. When you finish this intimate tour, you'll have learned the ins and outs of winemaking, wine tasting, and the true history of the Cinque Terre, all the while in the company of experienced local guides who have been working with both the winemaker and the sommelier for years. If wine is your passion or you just want to do something different from mass tourism, this is for you.
