  • Abruzzo Bike & Wine Weekend 3 days
Overview
An original bike tour in Italy for those who want to discover the hidden gems of this amazing country. Here we are in Abruzzo — one of most compelling, gastronomically rich regions, one of the oldest wine-growing regions in the world. Abruzzo is known for its dominant varieties, the red Montepulciano grape and the white Trebbiano d’Abruzzo grape, and for nurturing lesser-known varieties like Passerina, Cococciola, and Pecorino. The latter is named not after the eponymous cheese but, rather, its historic tie to local shepherds (pecora means “sheep” in Italian) who were rumored to have noshed on these abundant grapes as they tended to their flocks. During our food & wine tour we'll travel along the wine and oil roads in the province of Chieti tasting these great wines in the saddle of your perfect Bianchi bicycle.
