During the eruption of Vesuvius Pompeii and its inhabitants were buried by tons of volcanic ash, preserving objects and human casts in perfect conditions.
Over the course of the centuries multiple eruptions have changed its morphology. In fact today the crater has a diameter of about 500 meters and a depth of approximately 230 meters.
Your driver will take you in a winery located on a gentle slope of the Mount Vesuvius on the south-west side of the Vesuvius National Park declared in 1995 affected by eruptions over the years 1794, 1906, 1944. This is the Vesuvian land where the fertile volcanic soil gives distinctive properties to the autochthonous vines and grapes. Piedirosso, Aglianico, Caprettone, Caprettone, Falanghina e Catalanesca.
The excursion is characterised by the visit of the vineyards, observation of lithologies that highlight the extreme stratification of volcanic soils.
This wine experience will take place between vineyards cultivated on the lava of Vesuvio. Here you’ll be able to see the mixed composition of volcanic soil, result of several eruptions, learn about the traditional local wine making process as well as about the passion and sacrifices of this heroic viticulture.
