Perched on the cliffs throughout the Amalfi Coast you can find the lemon farms of the famed sweet Amalfi lemons used to make limoncello and many wonderful local pastries and delicious dishes. The terrain and abundance of sunshine in the region is not only wonderful for postcard perfect photos and growing our sweet lemons, it’s excellent for cultivating grapes that produce wine!
In Vietri sul Mare where we live, there’s a beautiful vineyard overlooking the center of the village and the sea. Our friends there produce a limited amount of organic wine that is mostly sold in fine restaurants in the USA. Though the production is limited, the wine is delicious.
They have a fantastic guide who speaks great English (as well as some other languages) to give a tour of the vineyard. He’s also available to us as a guide of the village in case you would like to know more about its history in an additional or separate tour. In fact, he’s my co-star in the episode of HGTV’s House Hunters International that we filmed together in 2016 which features my move from Rome to Vietri sul Mare called “Amalfi Coast Reboot.”
A tour of the vineyard includes a walk through the property, an interesting lesson on the winemaking process in the vineyard’s cellar, and a tasting of the wines produced there. The tasting is complete with the addition of local homemade dishes you can enjoy relaxing on the terrace overlooking the sea. Bottles of wine are available for purchase at the vineyard and they can arrange shipping to your home if needed.
Scenes of the vineyard (and of course throughout the village) can be seen on the above mentioned TV episode. Contact us to discuss available times to book your tour with our TV Star tour guide, Alfonso, and if you’d like to combine it as a full-day excursion with other activities in the area.
