Wine day tour from Piacenza
Here is what you will live
Whether you're staying in Piacenza for business or for vacation, take the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful wine day tour that will let you discover 2 wineries on a beautiful wine day tour.
Your first stop will be the organic Illica Winery.
The biological history of these wines began with Paola's grandfather, legendary guardian of the art of sausage production, continued with his father, a loyal guardian of the order, kidnapped by the love for vines and came to me, conquered by passion for wines that know how to be authentic expressions of a territory free from contamination and pollution. The organic certification of the grapes started almost twenty years ago when organic was a new word but, to be honest, in the Illica family, biological is the norm, history, tradition. It's just what they've always done.
Don't miss the wine tour at ILLICA of the brothers Fabrizio and Paolo, also known as Fabri and Paolino. They will tell you who they are and why they make wine, where they come from, their wine philosophy. You will visit the small winery, the vineyards (weather permitting), they will explain their production process. Then of course you will taste their organic and vegan wines in the tasting room in cold periods and under the porch of the cellar during the hottest periods or even in the vineyard! You'll taste 5 wines paired with the typical salami, coppe, Piacenza bacon and typical cheeses, flavored croutons, gardener, local jams and honey and to round off our raisin wine with a moldy plant combined with sbrisolona or typical sweets
After Illica you''ll go to Villa Oppi, one of the oldest wineries in Italy. You'll have a fantastic tasting guided directly by the owner of the company aimed at letting you discover their unique products.
The whole experience will take place in the inner courtyard area of the castle of the estate. Since they have an inner room,they will also be able to organize the tasting in case of bad weather.
You'll enjoy 4 wines and 2 passito sweet wines accompanied by cured meat, parmesan cheese and dark chocolate!
