Evening nature excursion to discover the island’s winemaking history: with a short walk to Scopeto, we’ll reach the Castellari winery, in the northwest reaches of the island, where we ‘ll meet Simone Ghelli, who has been producing Ansonica under the “Calzo della Vignia” label since 2021. Sipping this wine means immersing oneself in the natural, geological and human history of the island: the floral notes of helichrysum and lentisk, the granite crushed by erosion and turned into the earth, the aroma of the surrounding sea. And the patience of those who painstakingly climb and care for these plots of land, and of those who drink, who, as the label says, must know how to wait a little while, so that the wine can release its full bouquet and one can experience slow food and sustainability. The Park Guide will illustrate the ancient winemaking methods, starting from Roman times, and we’ll then taste wine in the vineyard, admiring a breathtaking panorama that stretches from east to west, overlooking the sea.
Meeting point: 2 hours before sunset, bus stop after the Bivio, on the provincial road to Giglio Porto – Duration: 4 hours – Difficulty: easy – Advance booking required, minimum 6 participants: € 23, including excursion and tasting.
