Arrival in the estate of Nuova Sala Paradiso near Orsara di Puglia, in the hills of Apulia. The estate is totally surrounded by a natural environment made up of vineyards, gardens and a forest. All around a quiet atmosphere with the scent of burned wood. Once settled in your suites, we all meet in the cellar to start a guided tour with explanation of winemaking process followed by a tasting of the following wines: Bollicina (Spumante D'araprì), Rosé (Cantina La Marchesa: Il Melograno) followed by local wines (Aliuva and Ursaria) all accompanied by tasting of salami, cheese, a hot dish of the Apulian tradition and a second dish based on meat or vegetarian.
We all meet in the lobby after breakfast. We will travel to estate Bocca di Lupo to visit one of the most important wineries in Apulia located in the heart of the Murgia, the area DOC of Castel del Monte, whose land and climate allow the production of wines of excellence. We will dive in Tormaresca's cellars that produces fine wines, including the Trentangeli, the Kaloro, the Pietrabianca and Aglianico. The visit will end with a wine tasting and a traditional lunch in the estate. In the afternoon we will move to the nearby Castel del Monte, a world Heritage Site, to admire one of the most evocative and enigmatic castles of Apulia with its unusual shape. After the visit we will have a brief stop in Andria at the sweet museum, the site of the oldest confectionery in the area, where we will taste the most delicious variety of sweets produced by the firm Giovanni Mucci. Return in the evening to Orsara di Puglia and gala dinner at the estate.
