Trip Report great winery near Ancona Italy

Jump to last reply

Our ship docked in Ancona Italy which, IMO, had nothing to interest us. The stores didn't even open until 3 pm the day we were in port. I had arranged in advance for someone to pick us up from a winery called Antica Cantina Sant'Amico. It was 45 min. away, through some very rural areas; our driver said sometimes even taxis got lost en route. The winery is run by a 4th generation woman who went to university in London and speaks excellent English. Olympia and her family and colleagues were very warm and welcoming, and flexible in their scheduling. We took a tour of the estate, which I had not expected to be nearly as interesting as it turned out to be. Unlike most wine tastings we've been to, she was extremely generous (understatement) with the amount she provided. We enjoyed the wines, and were able to compare one that was directly from the barrel (as some locals prefer) vs. its bottled counterpart. Plates of meats and cheeses also were part of what we opted for. Altogether, a delightful way to make the most of our time away from Ancona!
