Naples is the ideal city for vineyards since the land is rich and fertile for growing fresh grapes. Wine has been ingrained in their tradition and it dates back to the Greeks and Romans who would occasionally have a glass of wine even during the day. Naples is one of the most famous cities in the world for producing local wine and some of the best regions to sample this beloved drink is in Vesuvius, Piedirosso, and Capretonne.
Limonoro is one of the best places to try wines and limoncello, a popular Italian liqueur. The winery is filled with friendly staff who more than willing to impart their knowledge. The price is fair and the staff are booming with energy and are ready to help curious customers and wine connoisseurs at any time.
Bosco de Medici Winery
Bosco de Medici Winery is another great winery that’s relatively new. It’s tucked in a quiet place away from the traffic and noise of the city. It’s located in a lovely vineyard with a rich history right beside Pompei. They even have tours and food options for families who want a quick bite after having several glasses of wine. It’s a brief 20-minute walk to the Piazza Anfiteatro gate. So for people who are looking for a rich historical experience alongside drinking wine, then this is the place to be.
Lastly, we have Sorrentino Vini. In the Sorrentino estate, you’re welcomed by Carmella who’s one of the estate’s sommeliers who’ll help guide you through an exquisite collection of wines. Not only do they have a wide variety of wines to choose from but they also have cooking classes and meals. You have the option of sampling seven wines alongside a four-course meal while enjoying the majestic views of Mt. Vesuvius and its blue ocean. It’s a sight worth visiting and the view from the estate is simply breathtaking.
