F. THE HARVESTING EXPERIENCE

The harvest is an immersive experience! Getting your hands dirty by picking the grapes, savoring its scent… is something unique, difficult to describe but easy to live. After the winery visit, the harvest begins and you will play the role of the proganist. And when hunger comes, the tasting lunch will be right into the vineyard, in the bucolic shade of the Montepulciano pergola. As per our Abruzzese tradition, we’ll serve typical dishes of the harvest-brunch, in combination with 3 wines of your choice. This is a journey through authentic emotions and genuine flavors.

e. THE ABRUZZESE “SUNDAY LUNCH” COOKING CLASS

The cooking class a unique experience to learn deeper our Abruzzese culture. It includes two different typical local recipes. The first one is an “Antipasto” such as “pallotte cace e ove” or melanzane ripiene”. The second one is a “Homemade Pasta” recipe such as “sagne appezzate”, “cavatelli” or “pasta alla chitarra”. The teacher is not a cook but an original “old style housewife”, as professional cooks are not able to do the same. Everything in Fontefico is strictly authentic!
This is why we propose popular local recipes, authentic master pieces of the typical Abruzzese Sunday lunch. They are also very easy to replicate at home. Hence, back at home, visitors will be able to surprise their own guests with an original Italian Abruzzese recipe. Next the class, the lunch will be a wine-food pairing: four courses matched with four wines, including a Reserve wine. The tasting-lunch will also include the recipes that guests have prepared during the cooking class.

THE VERTICAL TASTING

Vertical tastings are always an amazing emotion. Retracing the old vintages of our wines is the best way to learn about all the nuances of the territory. The charm of this experience is also in the debate that unfailingly comes about, on how the identity of each vineyard was expressed in the different vintages and therefore on the evolution of each wine in the various tasted vintages. This year we are proposing three different verticals: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC 2006/2007/2008, Titinge Riserva 2007/2008/2009 and Costetoste selection 2008/2012/2014.
