Wine tasting on the islands of the Venice Lagoon
Can you imagine seeing wineries in the middle of a lagoon?
Cruise from Venice to the islands were grapes are still cultivated making a wine which is really unique. The first stop will be at Sant’Erasmo, the vegetable garden of Venice. Here, beside the famous violet artichoke, some important vineyards have been created to produce a tasty white wine. The wine tasting will be in the garden facing the lagoon among fruit trees and cultivated grounds.
Proceed along Sant’Erasmo island to reach the small and picturesque island of Mazzorbo, connected by a wooden bridge to the more famous Burano. The Venissa estate features an ancient walled vegetable garden as well as a vineyard originally from Venice. On this unique island, in fact, the ancient Venetian vines cultivated during the Serenissima Republic, only recently rediscovered, have been wisely replanted. The wine has a slightly salty taste as grapes absorb some salt from the ground making it very tasty and different from Sant’Erasmo’s white wine.
Enjoy your visit to these two islands where, beside the wine tasting, a lunch with local food can be arranged.
