ARCHENO II: Vino and Divino at the Foot of the Mountain, May 9th

Last year’s event was spectacular ), and this one should not be any different. An event celebrating archeology, art, history, food, and wine.

The event begins at 1630 in the Sala Consiliare of the Comune di Sant Anastasia (Na) in Piazza Siano with a discussion about the grapes that Alfonso I of Aragon planted on Monte Somma.

At 1830. There will be a guided tour of the Santa Maria Del Pozzo Church ( Via Santa Maria Del Pozzo 114, Somma Vesuviana) which was constructed in 1333 by King Roberto d’Angio. This church is famous for its underground frescoes and other wonders.

Afterwards, a wine tasting provided by Cantine Olivella as well as a meal prepared by Europe’s youngest Michelin star chef, Francesco Sposito of Ristorante Taverna Estia in Brusciano (Na). Plus music, music, and more music!

This fusion of archeology, culture and wine is free, but space is limited and reservations are necessary. They can be made by contacting Cantine Olivella at 081 5311388 or 340 7469126 info@cantineolivella.com.
