At Fontefico Vineyards, we offer you several distinct wine tasting experiences. Our wine tasting offerings reflect our lifestyle at Fontefico: the ultimate experience in drinking authentic, organic wine while enjoying delicious local food offerings all the while basking in our beautiful, tranquil setting situated between the Apennine mountains and the Adriatic sea.
Experience A is not only a wine tasting, but an educational and essential wine class. It focuses on wines by grape varietals indigenous to Abruzzo and provides three of our finest wines: current vintages of “La canaglia” Pecorino Superiore, “Fossimatto” Cerasuolo Superiore and “Cocca di Casa” Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. The wines will be combined with our handpicked, local food delicacies. Each wine comes with one or more food pairings, the best Abruzzo has to offer among traditional salami, delicious homemade cheeses and other amazing local culinary delights. You might consider enhancing your experience by adding additional current vintages wines to your tasting, for just 5 euros more per each additional wine sampled.
Experience B is the most complete event as your guided wine tasting takes place over lunch: while enjoying yourself you will also learn more about organic viticulture, wine and the secrets of the food pairing. This experience provides a full tasting of four wine selections: “La canaglia” Pecorino Superiore, “Fossimatto” Cerasuolo Superiore, “Cocca di Casa” Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and the special selection “Titinge” Riserva Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. The wines will be accompanied by a gourmet lunch featuring several local specialties, an artisanal pasta course and a dessert or fruit course, each of which is paired with Fontefico’s finest wines. You may also wish to enhance the “Fontefico experience” by purchasing alternate bottles from our distinct wine collection, including our cellared vintages.
Experience C is for anyone wishing to sample our wines apart from the option to pair each glass with our local food delicacies. Beside the vineyards and cellars tour, the wine tasting includes two wine varietals among the current vintages of “La canaglia” Pecorino Superiore, “Fossimatto” Cerasuolo Superiore, “Cocca di Casa” Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. During the wine tastings we offer fresh bread and organic Fontefico Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Experience D is designed for spending a full day at Fontefico; relaxing poolside, sipping our fine wines and enjoying a selection of our outstanding local food products. This experience provides a lunch including two appetizers, a artisanal pasta course and a dessert or fruit course, based on the menu of the day. You can also enhance the experience D purchasing meat courses and of course any Fontefico wines. Wine and lunch are served poolside while relaxing by our crystal clear salt-water pool. This is more than a wine-tasting experience; it’s a wine-tanning experience!
