*Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio Tour
This is the only winery in the world that is completely “green” and certified as carbon neutral.  Powered by sophisticated solar panels, they store energy to run the farm and cantina equipment which is electric. For many generations, who come from ancient nobility, have tended the vineyards of the castle. It was the vision of our dear friends, Princess Maria Camilla and her brother, Count Lorenzo-Fasola Bologna, of Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio, to revolutionize the wine industry and not only become “green” but to actually generate carbon credits, by planting trees to absorb any carbon emissions from work in the vineyard, the olive groves and the cantina. The grapes and olives grow in the purest conditions for the highest quality wines and extra-virgin olive oil which are tended and harvested by hand.  Watch the video at: Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio

**Farm to Table Tour
Our first stop is a unique stone flour mill and wood-fired oven bakery. We learn about breadmaking beginning with grain! We then move up to a local farm where a family raises animals for salumi making, meat and cheese production. We will make cheese and pasta with Nonna Rita before indulging in a traditional farm lunch.
