Our experience discovering the Amalfi coast with its wines, lemons, colors, tastes and amazing natural beauty was an amazing one thanks to the wine tour Le Baccanti put together for us. Being with a private driver and having the full day to explore and stop for photo-taking was an extraordinary event! Le Baccanti was very professional and cordial, and responded very well to our needs. I would highly recommend this tour and Le Baccanti!

Spend an exclusive day of leisurely wandering among southern Italian vineyards and wine cellars, sampling white and red local wines rich in sweet bouquets as the cool breeze comes in off the blue Mediterranean Sea sparkling below. The Amalfi coast is the pride and joy of the hospitable, friendly people who live and work this land, and who have preserved its traditions and treasures for centuries.
Your full-day Amalfi Wine Tour begins as your English-speaking driver collects you at your accommodations in either Sorrento or Positano or nearby, and takes you to your first visit: one of the best cellars on the Amalfi coast, proudly producing wines under Costa D'Amalfi denomination. You will tour this stunning Amalfi vineyard with an English-speaking local winery guide who will explain the growing and harvesting processes implemented on these steep hillsides. You will then visit the cellars and learn how the wines are made. A guided tasting in English will give you some insight on the estate's production and the red and white wines of Amalfi.
You will have a chance to visit a nearby village and have lunch at a delicious osteria featuring mouthwatering, freshly-caught seafood. Following lunch, an afternoon visit to another wine-producing estate will help you further understand these unique wines and bring your relaxing full-day immersion into southern Italian wine culture to a close.
The marvelous vineyards of the Amalfi Coast are spread out on bold terraces carved out during the centuries from the steep slopes that race downhill to the sea. The wine cellars in Amalfi were excavated before Caesar's time out of solid hillside rock. White wines with strong personality are made here, whites with their own intense and unforgettable aromas, whites made from vines teased by the damp, salty sea winds that constantly make the grape leaves ripple. The Amalfi reds also deserve attention: warm, intense, and unmistakably Mediterranean.
If leaving from Sorrento or Positano, we recommend selecting the earliest departure time possible, particularly during high season (late spring, summer, and early fall). Roads along the Amalfi Coast can experience heavy traffic in the late morning.
SPECIAL NOTE: We strive to ensure private visits at the wineries. In particularly busy times of the year, or in certain wineries this may not always be possible. If you would like guaranteed private visits, please get in touch for a customized quote.
