All about wine

Pico Wine Culture – Full day

Pico island

Wine is the nectar of the gods, and the island of Pico a parcel fallen from Olympus.

The pounding landscape of the vineyards resulted from decades of hard, endless work, but its mighty image also furrowed the hills with a magnificent digital printing.

Associated to it, the wine cellars appear, places of peace and delight concealed in the coolness of the shades and recesses where the casks rest. Under impressive dragon trees, the most notorious of the cellars arises – the wine museum.
