SHORE EXCURSIONS FROM THE PORT OF GENOA TO THE WINE REGIONS NEARBY.
Wine tours with private driver at the Cinque Terre, Tigullio Gulf and Western Riviera.
The port of Genoa is located near some wine making regions where it’s possible to visit the wine cellars, learn more about the wine making and of course taste some local wines. Wine tastings can be matched with the visit of interesting venues situated in the surrounding of the wine regions.
Cinque Terre Wines. The wine making in this area started 1000 years ago with the production of a sweet wine called Sciacchetrà, to which, later, was paired the table wine production. The wine-oriented shore excursion in the 5 Terre includes a walk in the vineyards, meeting the wine growers, wine tastings and visit of some villages.
Portofino wines. The gulf around Portofino and Santa Margherita is crowned by hills entirely terraced on purpose for the growing of grapes and olives. The visit of a wine cellar can be paired even with the visit of an olive mill, both of them located near Sestri Levante. Other lovely towns of the area are Chiavari and Camogli.
Western Riviera Wines. This is the part of the Italian Riviera that stretches towards the French border, in the area of Imperia on the hills inland of the town, there is a good production of Pigato, Rossese and Vermentino wines.
