Discover the viticulture traditions of Manarola with Alessandro, a young winemaker, native of this beautiful village of the Cinque Terre.
You will leave from the centre of Manarola and walking down the main road leading to the small harbour, you will have the opportunity to admire the typical colorful houses and the fishing boats parked along the street. Then you will go up to the cemetery, which is located in a fantastic panoramic position, with the best view of Manarola and even a partial view of Corniglia. Through an ancient path in the midst of gardens you will reach the vineyards of Alessandro, where he will teach you to distinguish the grape varieties and the different methods of pruning and grape growing. The path leads you to the Church of San Lorenzo, and with an extra effort you will be in Alessandro’s wine cellar.
You will taste his white Cinque Terre DOC wine accompanied by the typical Ligurian focaccia. Alessandro is also the member of the Foundation of Manarola Cinque Terre, created in 2014 in order to protect the cultural heritage of the village. With your participation of the tour, you support the project of the foundation with a little charity.
Price includes: visit of the vineyard and the wine cellar, tasting of a Cinque Terre DOC white wine, focaccia and a small donation to the foundation.
