In addition, it will be possible to taste the wine made there and to know the historical artifacts used by that family. Our tour continues on a medieval bridge with mysterious writings. Traditional lunch is included, you will be taken to an original restaurant of the region where you can enjoy the "cod with potatoes to the punch" among other spices.
