Private Azorean volcanic wine Tour from Angra do Heroísmo
Only eight places in the world produce volcanic wines. Just think of the romance that surrounds wines grown in soils born of molten earth and ash. Volcanic soils account for only 1 percent of the world’s surface but contribute a much larger percentage of the world’s great vineyards. Volcanic wines have captivated adventurous wine lovers looking to shock their palates with something different.
This is a micro-production wine from the volcanic Azores islands in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is grown in volcanic basalt at sea level, less than 50m from the Atlantic. This terroir and the blend of varieties imbue this wine with incredible minerality and purity, as well as unmistakable stony flavours, salinity, and a savoury character, minerality and volcanic wines walk hand-in-hand. Volcanic wine regions are home to some of the most intriguing and characterful wines in the world.Itinerary
