- Tour a vineyard on the slopes of an active volcano
- Stroll through vines that are centuries old
- Super-convenient with train tickets and private transfers
It’s a fact that volcanic soil is especially fertile, so it makes excellent sense to plant your vines on the slopes of an active volcano - probably. Anyway, despite the fact that Mt. Vesuvius is continental Europe’s only active volcano and it has a pretty infamous history, this vineyard tour from Sorrento is sure to produce some pretty special wines to taste. The vines here have been growing for hundreds of years, using organic, pesticide-free techniques. And you’re invited to try the results with an exquisite four-course lunch, made from local and homemade produce. We think this Sorrento gift experience should join the ranks of essentials such as Capri and Pompeii.
You’ll travel to the vineyard in a convenient, stress-free fashion - return train tickets from Sorrento are included, and on arrival at Pompeii Scavi station you’ll be met by a private transfer taking you directly to the vineyard. Drink in the sumptuous views of the bay, and the aroma of the grapes as you take an interesting tour of the facility, before settling down to your tasting session and then a memorable lunch. Just keep an eye on that volcano, ok?
