Sangiovese Wine Tour – 2 wineries with gourmet lunch
from €280per person
An unforgettable experience to get to know or deepen your knowledge of Sangiovese in its highest expression.
If you like wines, if you like good wines and you are in Emilia Romagna, you can’t really miss this journey to meet Sangiovese, the most typical wine of this land and 2 of its best producers.
We’ll start from the comfort of your private minivan or car and drive to the hills of Castel San Pietro to visit one one of the most famous wineries producing Sangiovese, Umberto Cesari.
The Cesari family has always been passionate about wine: Umberto’s father ran one of the most historic Osterias in Bologna. Umberto wanted something more: not just selling, but create great wines. In the early ’60s he purchased a small vineyard on the hills of Castel San Pietro, founding the company and starting his mission: turning a typical grape of the area, Sangiovese, into an internationally known and loved wine. Mission accomplished, you’ll see it for yourself: we’ll spend 1-1,5 hours into this world of smells, experience, technique to better understand the care and passion this family has based everything on, tasting 3 different wines.
The second destination is waiting for you on the hills surrounding Predappio, a small town located 1 hour from Bologna, considered the true home of Sangiovese. At the second winery (the location will vary according to season and availability) we will learn about the deep connection between this land and Sangiovese wine while exploring another world of intense flavors and smells.
Feeling hungry? Nothing to worry! In between the 2 visits, your driver will take you to one of the most appreciated local restaurant where you will fill your belly with a feast of amazing traditional recipes for a day fulll of food, wine and happiness!
