This experience begins with a complete Yoga session (Pranayama, Surya Namaskara, Asana, Shavasana) and continues with a walk through the vineyards and a guided tasting of the current vintages of “La canaglia”, “Cocca di Casa” and the selection “Costetoste “paired with local specialties.

CORPORATE MEETINGS

Fontefico is also an excellent venue for corporate meetings.
From simple business meetings to major conferences, capture the attention of your guests by immersing themselves in nature and then enchant them with our fantastic wine-break.

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.

  • Start at 9:30 am
  • duration 6 hrs
  • €110.00 per person
  • available only in September
  • by reservation at least 3 days before the visit
  • sneakers and long pants recommended

e. THE ABRUZZESE “SUNDAY LUNCH” COOKING CLASS

The cooking class is a unique introduction to our Abruzzese culture. It includes two different 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.

• Start at ad 11 am
• duration 4 hrs
• €95,00 per person
• by reservation everyday in the summer, Mon-Fri in the rest of the year

THE VERTICAL TASTING

Vertical tastings are always an amazing experience. 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. The vertical tasting comes with a cutting board of selected local cold cuts and cheeses.

• Start at 5 pm
• duration 2 hrs
• Vertical of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo or Costetoste selection €45,00 per person
• Vertical of Titinge Riserva €60,00 per person
• by reservation everyday in the summer, Mon-Fri in the rest of the year
