Riomaggiore: Vineyard & Wine Cellar Tour with Wine Tasting

1. Riomaggiore: Vineyard & Wine Cellar Tour with Wine Tasting

Vineyards overlooking the sea and Triple A wines: in the wonderful scenery of the Cinque Terre near to Riomaggiore there is a landscape and an enological reality that is not at all trivial, born from the dedication of its winemaker, a native of Riomaggiore. The result of his extreme dedication to work, his respect for tradition and continuous research, will not stop to continuously surprise us: first with a breathtaking scenery: an entire hillside descends abruptly from about 250 meters to the sea. From this very particular context, special wines are created that transmit the true character of tradition, including the sweet sciacchetrà  and white wines that give salty sensations combined with the perfume of Mediterranean scrub. Then new wines, the result of experimentation... including a rosé and a red, all organic production. An experience that will leave its mark and that will leave you with an indelible memory of the Cinque Terre.

What people are saying about Riomaggiore

Fantastisch! Heydi is een hele aardige man met veel kennis over (uiteraard zijn wijngaard) maar ook over Italië en de omgeving in het algemeen. Zijn wijngaard is heel mooi om te bekijken en ik heb achteraf nog heel gezellig met hem nagekletst over van alles en nog wat. Zo leer je veel over Cinque Terre en de wijngeschiedenis ervan. Een echte aanrader dus!

Our guide Angel was terrific! He let us explore as well as giving us great facts about things. I would recommend this to anyone. We saw all the cities except the one on top but could have hiked to it if we wanted to. We chose the lunch options and was it delicious! From the wine to the dessert and espresso. First class! This is one I would do again.

Very friendly winegrower who likes to share his passion. Not stingy with explanations, we learned a lot about the exploitation of the vines at the 5 lands. Took his time to answer all of our questions. The tasting in his private cellars in Riommagiore was just as interesting. I highly recommend this tour

Heydi was great really knowledgable and friendly. You get to see the vineyards on the side of the cliff and then go back to riomaggiore to taste all the wines.

The view mixed with wine history of the area and then the tasting is all an absolute chef's kiss! So well done, would highly recommend.
