Tour details:

Among the alleys of the center you will be surprised to visit the Wine Museum, dating back to 1500, which brings to light the treasures of the Altamurana wine tradition.

Located behind the Altamura’s Cathedral, it is one of the oldest sites in the historic city center.

The fantastic location is divided into two large spaces: On the ground floor, you can admire some special ollection pieces, like the impressive 17th century wood press and a series of utensils and equipment of that age.

With an 8-meter jump, a stairway leads you to the living-stone cave that is the most of this suggestive scenario: temperature and humidity made this an ideal place for wine fermentation and preservation; two wooden barrels with capacity of 40000 and 30000 liters, have been found exactly like now and they are the testimony of the authenticity and the historical treasure of this place.

A detail of the walls shows the result of a centenary work of microscopic streams that put into the walls minerals and oxides. A small trip through the time of hundreds of years where you can feel the sacrifice and

dedication to the work by the old generations.

The tasting will consist of Wine glass of Primitivo of Altamura (bottles aged in the natural stone cave ) a selection of cheeses, focaccia DOP and dairy products
