From one of the most beautiful historic village of Italy, Cervo Ligure, I will offer you an authentic edible experiences in the magic and still unrevealed West Italian Riviera. According to the season it will be possible to make a one-day long food experience. If you are fond not only of food, but also of cooking, all the food experience can be followed in the evening by an Italian Riviera cooking class, on request.
The wonderful experience of joining a grape harvest is possible only when the grapes are ready t be transformed in wine, which in the Italian Riviera is generally on September and beginning of October.
In a cozy vineyard located just on stone terraces clinging on the sea and surrounded by olives groves, you will join the harvesting of grapes, understand how to do it and all the process of making wine. After an hour or so of hard work you will have a traditional Italian Riviera lunch just in the vineyards. During our lunch you will also have a wine tasting with five different local wines and taste local oil, cheese and charcuterie. And as tradition rules a couple of live musicians will cheer the harvesting and the lunch.
After the lunch you can have a pleasant visit to the wonderful small historic village of Colla Micheri, one of the most beautiful villages of Italy!
