Full Day Wine Tours

Join us on one of our all inclusive full day wine tours, taste some of our favourite examples of local wines and enjoy a typical Pugliese lunch.

DSC_0041Starting from our base in the town of San Vito dei Normanni we typically visit four different vineyards / wineries and sample several of their fabulous wines.

At each location, we start with a short guided tour, in English, to understand more about the journey the wine follows from the vine to the glass. After which we get down to business and try the wines!  Our private tastings are hosted by the winemaker (or one of their sommeliers) who will guide you through the experience of tasting their wine and are on hand to answer any questions you may have.  This means that you can really savour the passion that goes into each and every bottle!

During the day you will taste a variety of Puglia’s indigenous grape varieties (many of which are still relatively unknown outside of Puglia) and hopefully, like us, you will discover a new favourite to look out for.  In addition, we will stop for a traditional Pugliese lunch at a local trattoria.
