Cross Country – The Sagrantino Grand Tour

Back to the exploration

Cross Country – The Sagrantino Grand Tour

A tour through the landscapes and vineyards of Sagrantino, where fatigue gives way to wonder and astonishment

We recommend you book this route only if you have mountain bike experience and a fairly good level of training. It’s not very difficult, but it will still put you to the test, with its 50 km length and its almost 1000-metre climb. Its beauty, however, will make you shake off any fatigue.

We will be cycling in pursuit of the entire DOCG Sagrantino Wine appellation which, among other things, has made this wine-producing area famous throughout the world. We’ll cycle through lush green countryside and fields of endless vine rows. We’ll take the ancient dirt roads and cut through entire plantations of olive groves. It will be a day focused on cycling but we will smell the aromas of the earth, of its typical products and its full-bodied, heady wines, as tough and vigorous as those who choose to cycle this route.

We will also be able to see ancient villages and medieval castles while our guide will be happy to reveal to you their age-old secrets.

A day dedicated to sport and strenuous effort, but also to Mother Nature’s beautiful landscapes; one of those days you’ll always remember.
