Wine cellars on Mt. Vesuvius

Vesuvian wine has been enjoyed since ancient times. Evidence of the area's delight in wine was preserved by Vesuvius' lava. It is said that even the god Bacchus found pleasure in the abundant wine and the company of those who lived at the foot of the volcano.
Ironically, while Vesuvius destroyed towns, its lava made the soil fertile. It produces dry and sweet white wines and a prized red (Terzigno, Boscotrecase, Trecase etc.). There are many wonderful wines produced with the same loving care as the ancient Romans.

Lunch and wine testing 22,00 euro for each person (minimum 5 persons).
