A Taste of Tramonti - Az. Agricola Tenuta San Francesco

Not far from Amalfi and Ravello, there is an area known as Tramonti...Tra-between...monti-the mountains.  And it is here where you'll find Tenuta San Francesco.  A winery that produces wines using grapes native to this historic part of Campania.  Grapes such as Falanghina, Biancolella, Aglianico, Piedirosso, Pepella, and Tintore. I had been there a couple of times before, but never in the spring. l  I took some friends to meet owner Gaetano Bove who took us on a tour of his Tintore vineyards.  We got up close and personal with vines that were over 250 years old!

After a tour of the cantina, we sat down for a wine tasting over a dinner feauturing products and recipes from the area..  Wines tasted; Tramonti Bianco 2010, Per Eva 2008, 4 Spine 2007, and E'ISS 2008. A real taste of the territory...Good food, great wine, and great company...

Another relaxing evening in Campania...
