Colors, scents and flavors of Abruzzo.
The tour will start in the scenic garden of Santa Maria Arabona, Cistercian abbey of the twelfth century, where two monks still live. We'll go back over the history of this ancient abbey and admire the sculpted and painted masterpieces.
Afterwards, we will go to Nocciano at Bosco Nestore winery, there we'll visit the wine cellar and we'll have a guided wine tasting.
This winery has been established since 1897, when Giovanni Bosco started, on the "Lovers Hill" of Pescara, his wine business producing what later became the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, famous worldwide for its intensive bouquet and a spicy taste .
Since 1968 Bosco wine is famous thanks to the recognition of the DOC Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and to the historic label which still identifies the quality of Bosco Nestore wine .
We will taste the wines and visit the cellar - a underground architectural gem - designed in the 80's by Giovanni Bosco Jr., in the countryside of Nocciano .
