This tour is a fascinating journey through beautiful olive groves, lush vineyards and typical “trulli”, the famous dry stone huts with a conical roof. In the heart of Puglia, the Itria valley is a charming blend of rolling hills intertwined with red-soiled fields.
You will visit top quality wineries surrounding the towns of Locorotondo, Cisternino and Martina Franca. This area is well known for the production of Premium white Wines, such as Locorotondo DOC and Martina Franca DOC, along with extraordinary rosè and red wines. The Itria Valley is also appreciated for its exquisite meat, like Capocollo di Martina Franca (mature pork) or Bombette (pork meatballs).
The most important grape varieties of the area are Verdeca, Bianco d'Alessano, Minutolo, Bombino and Malvasia Bianca, as well as Primitivo and Susumaniello. The valley is popular worldwide for its great wines and magnificent landscape, particularly the town of Alberobello is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
