Wine tour of Marche region

With Marco of Marcosway tours. Great tour! Marco is an excellent guide, his English is very good and he is a winemaker and an olive oil producer, so he was able to answer detailed questions, such as how much olive oil can one tree produce? (It depends on the year- trees take a break after a good yield). He is also witty, personable and I hope he expands to wine, cooking, art and general tours for the Marche region.

First we stopped at Luigi & Guisti to taste to typical grape from the March region, Lacrima.

The very friendly owner and winemaker thought we should try them all, so here is what he poured us, at a sit down table with meats and breads. Now, THIS is a wine tasting. We bought half a case here.

Next we went to Angeli di Varano and talked with one of the brothers who is taking over this second family vineyard we visited, Matteo, who spent a season working in Napa at Rutherford for the experience. His English was also near perfect. He treated us to a barrel taste of his 2012 Montepulciano Riserva. It was so good we bought 4 bottles of his 2010 and 2 of his blend.

Perfect day of wine tasting, and though we didn’t have room on the boat, we brought home a case of fine Italian reds!
