Salerno and Amalfi Coast: Brave Women in the Vineyard

a vineyardThis will be a tour that specially joins landscape, beauty and wonderfully tasting wines. An added value is: in both the vineyards a woman is the entrepreneur, and both getting prices for their products! So first of all we’ll drive on the Amalfi coast and wonder its fabulous landscape (see page). Up in the small village Raito we’ll visit a small but special ceramic museum in Villa Guariglia.

Afterwards we will get to our first vineyard. Here all the senses are involved: eyes for the view, smell and palate for these special red wines. These grapes enjoy all the sun of the sunny Amalfi coasRavellot, the winds passing through these mountains and the sodium coming up from the sea.

via Botteghelle - SalernoAfter lunch (based on fish!) in Vietri sul Mare, we get to another wine producer on the hills behind the town Salerno: another woman, another history. After a pleasant walk in the perfectly kept vineyard, the tasting: this time the stress goes on a balance flavoured white wine.

Going back to town, we’ll have a visit to the imposing Cathedral in Salerno. Then just relax by walking through these pretty, narrow, ancient streets full of shops and handicrafts.
