How can you imagine to see vineries in the middle of a lagoon? Cruise from Venice to the islands were grape is still cultivated making a wine which is really unique. The first stop will be at Sant’Erasmo, the vegetable garden of Venice. Here, beside the more famous violet artichoke, some important vineyards have been created to produce a tasty white wine. The wine tasting will be in the garden facing the lagoon among fruit trees and cultivated grounds. A real true experience. Proceed along Sant’Erasmo island to reach the small and picturesque Mazzorbo, another island connected by a wooden bridge to the more famous Burano. In Mazzorbo lies the tenuta Venissa with the ancient walled vegetable garden as well as the native vineyards of Venice. On this unique island, in fact, the ancient Venetian vines cultivated during the Serenissima Republic, have been wisely replanted and only recently rediscovered. The wine has a slightly salty taste as grapes absorb some salt from the ground making it very tasty and different from Sant’Erasmo’s white wine. Visit these two islands where, beside the wine tasting, a lunch with local food can be arranged.
