Wine & Food tour on the stunning Amalfi Coast


Furore and the Amalfi Coast Territory

 

The Amalfi Coast is famous all over the world for its shores, jagged shorelines, immaculately white villages clinging to the steep slopes, hanging between the sky and the clear blue sea.

Furore, considered as one of  the “Borghi più belli d’Italia” (one the most beautiful village of Italy), has just over eight hundred inhabitants and is also known as “Il paese che non c’è” (“The nonexistent village”), due to being scattered on the sides of the mountain overlooking the sea.

It is a very small village, with narrow streets and stairways that climb up the rocky ridge and a natural harbour covered with the colourful houses of the fishermen. Furore is well known for its fjord and the walls of the houses painted by well-known and internationally renowned artists.

The vineyards of Furore climb the rocks overlooking the Gulf of Amalfi and are exposed to the magic of the sun and salt.

Small lots torn from the rock that yield "extreme" and heroic wines, fruit of the labour, sweat, and industriousness of man, who creates noble wines from ancient and historical vines in these impervious areas.

  • Day 1: Morning

    Explore Ravello

    Enjoy exploring the streets of Ravello before the midday heat. This stunning village has long been a haven for artists. It has played host to many famous names over the years, creatives who came in search of inspiration to write books, screenplays and music. And no wonder! Ravello has a jawdropping view of the entire Amalfi Coast when looking south. Make sure to check it out at Villa Cimbrone, which is renown for its Belvedere named “Terrace of the Infinite.”

    Other worthwhile sites are the Villa Rufolo, a 13th-century aristocratic home with a garden that is almost always in bloom and a unique cloister courtyard and the Duomo di Ravello, another 13th-century structure with its famous “Pulpit of the Gospels.

    This is also the perfect chance to breakfast like an Italian, with an espresso and a brioche at the local caffè/bar.


    Private Guided Winery Tour at Marisa Cuomo


    Cantine di Marisa Cuomo is one of Southern Italy’s premier wineries. The winery is famous for their “extreme wines” due to the steep terraces where the vineyards grow and recuperating native grape varieties with a thousand-year-old history.

    Deep into the Amafli Coast the village of Furore tenaciously clings, in scattered pieces, to the steep cliffside that dramatically drops into the Mediterranean Sea. Furore, which means fury in English, is not a place for the faint of heart. In fact, it is known as the Divina Costiera – Divine Coast – because plenty of courage, and a foolhardy belief in the luck of the Divine, is needed to dig a life out of this unforgiving landscape.




    The vineyards of Furore climb the rocks overlooking the Gulf of Amalfi and are exposed to the magic of the sun and salt. Small lots torn from the rock that yield "extreme" and heroic wines, fruit of the labour, sweat, and industriousness of man, who creates noble wines from ancient and historical vines in these impervious areas.

    It is this this superlative terroir that Andrea Ferriaoli gifted to his wife, Marisa Cuomo, on their wedding night 30 years ago. Andrea comes from a long line of local winemakers and wanted to continue on the customs of his native land.

    Over the past thirty years, the couple have been steadfast in their dedication to the unique terroir of Furore. Marisa Cuomo only used hyper-local grape varieties and makes an award-winning range of nine labels. Their flagship label is the world-famous Furore Bianco Fiorduva, a bright golden-yellow wine that tastes of salty air and sweet apricots.

    Vineyards and Winery Tour

    Guided tours to reveal the secrets of Cantine Marisa Cuomo in Furore. Steep slopes that stretch out in the sun and rocks that plunge into the crystal clear water off the Amalfi Coast. Among enchanting bays and coves, the vineyards of Cantine Marisa Cuomo dominate the “Fiordo di Furore,” the fjord that overlooks the Gulf of Salerno. The visit of the estate’s cellars and vineyards is followed by a unique menu of Furore’s gastronomic specialities paired with Marisa Cuomo wines at Ristorante Bacco, the family’s restaurant.
