Wine Tasting in Bertinoro

The third part of our fantastic first day in Bologna consisted of a wine tasting in the hilltop village of Bertinoro. As you can see from the picture below, you can see all of the region of Emilia Romagna from this adorable town. The views were absolutely breathtaking...

Nicola, Tom and I enjoying the views

At the Celli Winery, we got a full tour and learned about the family history behind it...

Our tour guide Mauro explaining the wine creation process that is specific to this winery

And then began the best part... the tasting of the wine!

Along with our wine we sampled Piadina (typical of the region) with fresh local cheese and greens

The information and history behind each type of wine

I enjoyed the last wine that we tried the best-- a sweeter white wine that almost tasted like apple juice.

The wine I took home with me!

After a few glasses of wine in us and full stomachs, we hopped back in our bus to head back to Bologna. The views on the way back were unreal. This is exactly how I've always imagined Italy to be like...
