~Tour of Lecce (The Florence of Southern Italy)~
Tour Southern Italy and indulge in a chauffeured tour of wine, food, and the spectacular landscape of Puglia, Italy. Savour some of 
the best wines and  get a glimpse of some of the region’s architectural gems. 
You’ll travel in comfort and style on this vineyard tour and  Lecce visit!    Explore fantastic scenery and 
appreciate centuries-old traditions that have remained largely unchanged. Sample and purchase wine from all the wineries we visit,   
as well as other products.

Our expert multi-lingual guides will lead you through verdant landscapes brimming with ancient vineyards responsible for creating the famous P
rimitivo, Negromaro, Sussumaniello, Aglianico e Bombino Bianco wines. The sounds, scents and flavours of Puglia will awaken your senses through 
unique experience. You’ll enjoy a day of exploring fantastic scenery.
We begin our tour in Lecce, home of baroque architecture and a history dating back to the Trojan War. 
See an amphitheater dating back to the glory days of the Roman Empire and discover the “Florence of southern Italy.” 
From Lecce, we will travel down the heel of the boot of Italy via winding coastal roads overlooking the sea to charming Castro.
 Sip cappuccino on the water and dip your toes in the crystal clear aquamarine waters of the 
Adriatic.
 
Near Castro, we’ll tour Castel Di Salve winery, created by the Duke of Salve in the 19th century. 
Castel Di Salve brings together wines produced from four of their vineyards which, though geographically very close,
 actually fall into four distinct microclimates and soil environments. 
The differing conditions give birth to incredible white wines... 
where it is a bit cooler and deep reds which ripen to perfection in the late,
 warm summers down by the sea. You’ll have a chance to taste them all! 


When we reach the tip of the boot of Italy, we’ll feast at either Hosteria del Pardo in Santa Maria di Leuca or Puritate in Gallipoli on 
fresh, traditional Pugliese cuisine such as mussels, fish, local cheeses, fresh-baked bread, and pasta. 
We’ll open up a red blend from Castel Di Salve, chat with the chef, and practice our Italian. 

After lunch, there is an option of touring another winery in Scorrano, owned by Duke Carlo, whose family has produced wine
 for almost 1,000 years. 
Most of the wines produced here are organic, with fantastic Primitivo and Negroamaro wines. 
Or, if you have had enough wine for the day, we can instead visit beautiful Gallipoli, which lies on the Ionian sea. 
Gallipoli is the home of breathtaking beaches, quaint shopping, and if you desire, we’ll 
show you a centuries-old underground olive mill which lies beneath the streets of downtown Gallipoli.
