Lucca wine tour and Lunch

Wine tour Lucca is taking place between Lucca and Montecarlo‘s countryside. Lucca is surrounded by a charming hilly landscape characterized by vast olive groves, vineyards and splendid Renaissance villas. The tradition of wine, especially the red one, is very ancient and is reported in old manuscripts  since the IX century. Sante Lancerio, the bottle-holder of Pope Paolo III Farnese, remembered above all the wines those produced by noble families in Lucca. Nowadays the Lucchesi winemakers have first obtained the Doc in the distant ’68, even earlier than in Chianti. The whites, instead, has been included in the Doc appellation in the ’85.

The town of Montecarlo, located on the hill (163 mt above sea level) and overlooking the Plain of Lucca, was built in 1333. The borough was named Montecarlo (the Mountain of Charles) in honour of Prince Charles, son of the King John of Bohemia, liberator of Lucca from occupation by Pisa.
Furthermore in ancient times the Via Cassia ran through the village, as did the Via Francigena during the Middle Ages. That increased the passage of pilgrims, seeking for rest and food. The olive tree and vineyards cultivations are among the oldest in Italy.
