Castel del Monte and Winery:
A tour to discover a place full of mistery and to taste Apulia wines in a magnificent wine estate
Today we drive to visit Castel del Monte near Andria, where the so-called “Stone Crown of Apulia” can be found. Castel del Monte is certainly the most important building that has left Emperor Frederick II Hohenstaufen of Swabia. Here numerous myths still surround the legendary “octagon”, full of mysteries not fully revealed. The Castle is an octagonal construction with eight octagonal towers. The number 8 depicts in magic the continuity and infinity.
Following transfer to a magnificent wine estate owned by the Antinori’s family. Crossing the, approximately, 130 vine yarded hectares, we approach the farm that reminds us of the typical “masserie” of the Murgia with its structure and brilliant white tufaceous walls. Tasting of wines selection and a snack with local products will be served in the enchanting hall.
