After the visit, the Tour of Pompeii continues to a vineyard at the foot of Mount Vesuvius for a light lunch in a beautiful panoramic terrace where you can taste the food and the wines of the area and finish with a distilled grappa of apricot. The area is famous for wine tour since the Roman times, when they built farm houses all around the mountain.
The combination of the geologic conformation of Vesuvius slopes, the rare characteristics of volcanic soil and a marvelous microclimate make the territory one of Italy’s most interesting viti-cultural areas,. The Lacryma Christi, (literally "tears of Christ") is the name of the wine produced here. According to the legend when Lucifer and the fallen angels were cast out from heaven, they grabbed a piece of it as they were forced to leave. As Lucifer fell, chunks of paradise landed on Mt. Vesuvius. When God saw what had happened, he cried. His tears became vines on the slopes of the volcano.
