Soft, rolling hills between the sea and the mountains, with vineyards and the famous Castles.
Jesi is located amongst the rolling hills of Verdicchio vineyards, halfway between the sea and the mountains. 
After a stroll through this beautiful town, the winding paths take us to see the views: soft, rolling hills with a multitude of vineyards and the famous Castles, a series of small town centres founded in medieval times. And as you are there within the walls, you will get a sense of what life was like in the Middle Ages.

You will discover local wineries whose common denominator is absolute top quality. You will be engaged by the fresh and lingering Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and the unique qualities that make it stand out among the great Italian white wines. But that is not all. You will soldier on, ever the wine adventurers, as we delve into the warm and fruity taste of Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, a local red wine.
The tour includes visits and tastings at two wineries, and lunch in an agriturismo or traditional osteria.
