Overview
The wine tasting takes place inside a historic building, precisely on the panoramic terrace, located on the perimeter of the historic center. With this experience you can learn about the Apulian wine history and you can taste 3 local wines, through which to understand the typical features of the area. For those who wish, it is possible to learn the basic techniques for tasting. All the wines selected as well as being of quality, and never "entry level wine", are produced by small companies and in small quantities (10-12 thousand bottles per label) in historic cellars that produce wines with traditional methods and respectful of the regional style. The wines are combined with local products. The sommelier is at your complete disposal.

Excellent tour. We visited two wineries that were very different - which was a great contrast. Learned a lot about the history of wines in the region and the types of grapes they use. We were also lucky because we were able to taste reserve wines at these wineries. Would highly

We did this wine-tasting last Sunday evening - it takes place on the terrace of Andrea and Alessandra’s palazzo, overlooking the old city. It was wonderful! Informative, good fun, great value for money and a fabulous way to spend an evening in Lecce. Thank you very much Andrea!
