During our trip to Italy in July, we decided to take the wine route that circles around Mount Vesuvius. We started the "Strade del Vino Vesuvio" in Torre del Greco, where we stayed, and drove clockwise around the vulcano. After driving for almost an hour, and having already covered three quarters of the route, we started to get desperate because we hadn't seen one opportunity for wine tasting.
Luckily, in Terzigno, close to Pompei, we saw a sign indicating a wine tastery, so we followed it. We arrived at the domain of Le Lune del Vesuvio and were welcomed by the owner. He showed us around the domain, proposed some good wines to taste and, since it was around noon, offered us some very tasty antipasti with all homegrown ingredients.
At the same time we were there, there were two reporters from Aicapì, an Italian food blog, visiting the estate and interviewing the owner. They published their blog post today, telling the story of the estate and the family owning it. The nice photo on top of this page of us enjoying the wine and food was taken from their blog post..
After reading the post (or rather the English Google translation) it occurred to me that it's very nice to read a report of your travel day without having to write it yourself. So if anyone wants to be the reporter for our next travels, let me know!
