Native grapes, ancestral communities, peaceful wildlife, and the shimmering Adriatic Sea.
A Marche wine tour is the ideal experience for those seeking a slow pace of travel. This is not the region of hustle and bustle, but rather keeping time with the setting and rising of the sun. The verdant mountainous Apennine landscape, riddled with steep badlands, lush valleys and ancestral communities, drop off into the glimmering blue of the Adriatic Sea. The Marche’s siren call is the birds chirping, wheat fields waving, lapping shores and untouched wilderness.
To experience Marche is to experience a culture built on craftsmanship. This is the home of fine leathercraft, shoemaking, woodworking art, architecture and of course, agriculture. A land of people dedicated to their vocations which shines through in the outstanding food and wine, Renaissance cities built in marble and stone, and the care with which each guest is welcomed.
Nestled between the sea and the looming mountains is the Piceno wine area of Marche. Although local Sangiovese and Montepulciano grow headily in the region, and are turned into Rosso Piceno Superiore DOC and Conero DOCG, it is truly a land of outstanding white wine.
A handful of DOCG wines are made from Marche’s most famous native white grapes, Pecorino, Passerina, and Verdicchio. They were rediscovered in the 80s and have progressively come to define the winemaking culture of Marche. Paired with the local cuisine that blends specialties from the mountains in equal parts with fresh seafood from the coast, these wines embody the full terroir of Marche.
