Cinque Terre wine tasting
We selected the best Cinque Terre wine experiences in and around Levanto, cause it would be a real pity to stay here and not to taste the local wine!
Cinque Terre means stunning unique landscapes, amazing hiking trails, colorful villages, fishermen boats and nowadays even souvenir shops, but above all it means terraced steep cliffs, olive trees and vineyards.
Local winemakers keep reminding us of our difficult past and about our beautiful, but complicated and fragile landscape. They teach us determination and passion.
If you are a wine lover or even if you simply want to get in touch with Cinque Terre local traditions and daily life, don’t miss these wine tastings.
Cheo in Vernazza is a small, but excellent winery and every Thursday afternoon at 6:00 you can simply show up and visit it and taste three of their wines for only 15€ per person. If you join a group of minimum te people, at 10:00 a.m. you can also visit their stunning vineyards overlooking Vernazza and the sea (20€, with wine tasting included).
Always on Thursday evening, from 6:30, the seafood shop Puna invites you to a very special wine and seafood tasting. You shouldn’t miss it!
Vernazza Wines Experience is a more classical wine tasting taking place every day from 5:00 p.m. on Gianni Franzi‘s deck, right under the Doria Castle of Vernazza. Alessandro, the local sommelier running this wine experience is also available to arrange a private wine tasting for you and your friends!
Cantina Sassarini and local producer Scià invites you taste their wines and Sciacchetrà daily. Just let us know and we’ll fix it for you! The vinery is above Monterosso, passed the lovely and peaceful Soviore Shrine, which is worth a visit!
Cantina Buranco, a small paradise in Monterosso, only two minutes walking from downtown, but away from Cinque Terre hustle and bustle. No need to book here, just show up from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and enjoy the landscape and of course their wines and limoncino and their complementary yummy tapas!
At La Nicchia, a local and well furnished wine shop, you can taste some local wines while learning how to prepare the Ligurian pesto sauce for only 10€ per person.
If you want to take part in it, which we recommend, just let us know one day in advance and we’ll fix it for you!
