The only difficulty to doing a self-guided tour of the wines in Le Marche is that you have to be in the know. Most wines are from small family run wineries, completely unassuming most without a sign let alone 'tasting hours'. The best way to "sample the goods" is to contact Marco (Marco's Way), he will unlock the door to Le Marche's most delicious & prestigious wine production. The best part - you don't even have to drive! He'll pick you up & drive the beautiful back-roads of Jesi, Osta & Morra d'Alba.
Marco recently took Jason & I out for 2 days of wine tastings at big producers & tiny family run operations in their home! It was a fantastic experience I would highly recommend! We met the owners, shared stories & drank glass after glass of delicious Marche wines. After all was drunk - we purchased hundreds of bottles of wines to serve at our farmhouse.
Marco personally leads the tour in English and will introduce you to some of the most characteristic, family owned wineries in the Region.
Sample world famous wines such as Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi (1999, Gold Medal, White Wine Category, International Wine Challange, London), Rosso Conero and indigenous grape varieties such as the Lacrima di Morro d’Alba.
Walk through vineyards, discover all the secrets techniques behind wine making, and match wine to our land's gastronomic specialities. You will have tutored tasting sessions, making the process of wine tasting easy and enjoyable.
