Wine tasting of Vermentino

Carrara, Italy

Experience hosted by Silvia

90 mins
Includes food, drinks
Up to 4 people
Hosted in Italian, English, French

What you'll do

Andrea, our Captain, is a wine producer in the area of ​​Candia and alternates his activities as a vintner with that of a skipper. The vineyards climb up the steep hills of the Candia hills, the area where our wines are produced, on terraces that are followed and cultivated strictly without machinery and facing the sea.
For this reason we have chosen for this tasting activity an unusual location: the sailboat that, in the marina at the foot of the Apuane, encloses the typical features of our territory.
We will then meet at the Marina Club and guests will be accommodated by boat where they can learn more about our wines and taste the typical products of the Apuan area with them.
The tasting:
Vermentino Acquafiora: our classic Vermentino collects grapes from different vineyards, all on the steep hills of Candia, hills that are difficult to work because of steep slopes, ranging from 30 to 45%.
Vermentino Cuore di Candia: it is the company "cru", the grapes derive exclusively from the vineyard with exposure facing the sea.
Rosso Scorciato: from Sangiovese, Canaiolo Nero, Cigliegiolo and Vermentino Rosso grapes.
Other things to note
Abbiamo scelto di farvi assaggiare i nostri vini sulla nostra barca a vela perché sono vini che nascono tra i monti e il mare, sulle terrazze delle ripide colline del Candia che fronteggiano il mare.

Andrea's passion for the sea combines the activity of wine producer. The wines of Cantine Ramarro are 3, two Vermentini and a Rosso, recognized by experts and critics as among the best in the area. The territory, its products and its typical products are our passion and we like to be able to share, tell and explain to our guests. Since, as we all know, we are what we eat, we will offer you tastings selected by us from a small group of local producers (lard made according to tradition, local or homemade bread, delicacies according to typical recipes).

Where you'll be

The sailboat is our good lounge on the sea, an enchanting location in an enviable position from which at sunset you can relax with the view of the Apuan Alps behind and the sea in front. The union of our passions, of the typical products of the territory and the love for the sea brought us to propose this tasting experience in a different place from the usual ones. An intimate place to get to know each other and talk about each other. Boat will be safely moored at the port, and we will not take any sailing tour, but enjoy the tasting in a nice and quiet place

Silvia and Andrea were wonderful hosts on board the sailboat. We had a great time talking about the wines and vineyards. This eventual turned into talking about everything. The wines were delicious. I wish we could have purchased a few bottles to take with. Our only disappointment is that we didn't get to sail the boat. It was a very enjoyable evening.

What a beautiful and unusual setting to taste some splendid wines and taste some traditional Italian food. Silvia and Andrea are the perfect team and they have brought their love and passion for boats and wine together for this experience, effortlessly. As you sip on your sangiovese, the sun sets in the backdrop of the marina whilst Andrea and Silvia reminisce about times gone by and adventures their boat has been on. Silvia went out of her way to get us some bottles of the wine and oil we had that evening...even packing them for us so all we had to do was put them in our suitcase. For one night of our holiday we were part of a lovely, traditional Italian family who would stop at nothing to make sure we were watered, fed and left feeling merry. Thank you to Silvia and Andrea! An experience we will not forget.
