If you ask me what is the most important part of Italy travel for me, it is first and foremost the people. I have been fortunate to meet and befriend many people over the past few years who have supported me for my love for all things Italian.
In Le Marche too, I met Giorgio Savini with his niece Martina Savini- two lovely souls who went an extra mile to show the best of their region. The Savinis run the Vigneti Santa Liberata near Fermo and their wines are made with great passion and care and it is evident the moment you talk to the two.
Filled with great vigor and passion, it was a treat to walk in the vineyard and know that wine making has been their family business since 1934. I chatted with the pair to understand the method of making wine using high quality organic farming. The passion and love for their family and land was so heartwarming. I could see that they had really put their heart into it and Martina with whom I could instantly connect for the love of travel was a joy to speak to!
We had a great walk in their vineyards followed by a wine tasting. I tried their Rosso Piceno DOC Le Rene, Rosso Piceno DOC Vigna Cacià and Marche Rosso IGT Dàidalos. My favorite was the DOC Vigna Cacia, it absolutely won my heart!
If you are looking to taste some wines of Le Marche and have a splendid time in the region, I will suggest you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. They organize wine tastings and tours and are the best way to see something offbeat in and around Fermo. Even from Ancona it is well worth a day’s trip. I am so grateful to both Giorgio and Maria for showing their land. Grazie mille!! Follow them on Instagram and Facebook.
