WINES FROM THE CINQUE TERRE: BETWEEN TRADITION AND SURPRISE

The wines of the Cinque Terre embody an ancient tradition handed down through centuries of heroic cultivation on the famous terraces overlooking the sea. The millennial history of viticulture in this region has its roots since the fourth millennium BC, when the vine made its appearance in the eastern Mediterranean. Here, the impetuous winds, the blazing sun and the scarcity of water constantly challenge winemakers, who grow vines in a unique way: seated and protected by the famous dry stone walls. The wine-growing activity, very often, requires sacrifice and dedication. The grapes are harvested manually, on their knees, and transported for thousands of steps. It is from this effort that the Sciacchetrà is born, the jewel of the Cinque Terre, loved and sought after for its complexity and refinement.

In short, tasting the wines of the Cinque Terre means immersing yourself in a millennial history, savoring the fruit of the passionate and tireless work of local winemakers. Each sip reveals a unique combination of tradition and surprise, witnessing to the magic of a unique territory in the world.
