Cinque Terre Wine & Walking Tour – Winter 2021

Walking Tours Saison in 5 Terre is not over yet!

Starting from December book your  half-day itinerary to discover a village of the 5 Terre. At the end of the tour there will be a relaxing stop in a local wine shop, with a tasting of local wines.

AIS Sommeliers will share with you the wonder of flavors, aromas and traditions of the Cinque Terre Wines.

Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing

(E.Hemingway)

Focaccia bread

Have you been to Liguria and have you fallen in love with Focaccia?

I know..it happens so often! If you would like to try to do it at home and if you would like to amaze family and friends here you will find my special recipe.

Focaccia Ligure
Recipe:

500 gr soft wheat flour / half cube of brewer’s yeast/ 250 ml water / olio extra vergine d’oliva / 15 gr table salt

Knead the flour with the brewer’s yeast, previously dissolved in the lukewarm water and the table salt. Put the mixture, which will be slightly sticky, in a baking tray greased with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and let it rise in a warm place for about 40 min. Spread the dough with your hands slightly oiled, without removing it from the baking tray. Whisk 1/2 teacup of extra virgin olive oil with the same quantity of water and spread 2/3 of this mixture onto the focaccia surface. Let rise 1 more hour. Take the oven temperature to 250°C and with your fingertips make the typical focaccia holes on the dough, then wet it with the remaining oil and water emulsion, sprinkle with salt and put immediately in the oven. Cook for about 15-20 min. until the focaccia is golden brown.

Buon appetito!

ULTIMATE WINE TASTING TOUR IN 5 TERRE

The territory of 5 Terre and the coastline from Levanto up to La Spezia offers a wide range of itineraries: full day excursions by boat or train, half day excursions discovering the Gulf of La Spezia, Lerici and Portovenere, though for my most passioned guests I’m glad to offer an “ultimate wine tasting tour”

Join me for a  visit to local cellars and have a chat with our producers and winemakers.

Sipping a glass of 5 Terre wine is like looking through the wild beauty of our land, knowing the history of wine and our coast, understanding the tough life of farmers and winemakers through the centuries, learning to preserve a fragile environment.

Tailor-made tours on request for couples and small groups available.
