Combining the charm of 2 historical wineries with the glamour of a modern wine resort, this tour outlines both tradition and innovation and proves how Oltrepo’ area has so much to say in terms of quality of products and hospitality. Leaving from Milan or Pavia, a private, luxury car will drive you to the slopes of Calvignano through a landscapes of castles, churches and ancient villas, in order to visit Tenuta Travaglino, one of the most prestigious wineries of the area. A second tasting and a typical lunch will be held on the stunning terrace of Prime Alture wine resort that, built about 10 years ago, is a perfect example of how architecture can gently blend with nature. A salt water pool, a vegetable garden and a barbecue complete the experience. In the afternoon, you’ll be driven to Tenuta Conte Vistarino where, since 1629, Giorgi’s family has been owning an outstanding estate of 826 hectares. The family was the first to introduce pinot nero grape to Oltrepo’ Pavese that, after Champagne and Burgundy, is currently the third largest area in the world for the production of it. A wine tasting will be held in the jardin d’hiver of Villa Fornace, a perfectly preserved, 18th century villa that in the past has hosted members of the Italian, as well as the main European Royal families.
