When it comes to Italian wine Le Marche wines are beginning to make their mark on the world stage.  An area as captivating as any you will find in Italy with untamed coastline, stunning medieval towns, picturesque fishing villages and rustic hill-top and mountain villages and all off the beaten path just waiting to be discovered

Previously overshadowed by its world-famous neighbour, Tuscany, Le Marche has now been identified as one of the regions for THE next big thing in Italian wines and offers wines which are increasing in popularity and prominence each year.  Would you like to be one of the first to discover the up and coming wines and vineyards of this area?

We have put together an itinerary for you to explore first-hand these wonderful wines so why not join us on our wine-lovers weekend break and discover for yourself what Le Marche has to offer.  We’re sure you will be very pleasantly surprised. Le Marche has a whole host of vineyards to choose from – family run, consortiums, organic, bio-dynamic, natural, sustainable….

What you can expect from our wine-lovers weekend break:

  • Arrival from 3pm onwards on Friday with a glass of prosecco to welcome you to our hotel
