When the journey transforms into the desire to stay
We are situated on the “Wine path of the Trasimeno hills”, which has been designed to make the visitor feel the unique harmony of the territory, culture and quality. With every unique glass of wine you will spontaneously feel this spirit of complexity which will bring you far away from the daily chaos to a land of authenticity. And so you will enjoy the delicate taste of the first glass, which will soon be refilled. With the second drink the cheerful character of this precious beverage will get free. The third round will open you the doors of mystic accents: the taste, the color and the feelings of passion and pleasure.
The hidden reality comes out, Dionysus triumphs.
