Day 3: Monte Murano
The morning starts with a breakfast like champions, just what you need to tackle the first real stage of this cycling tour of Le Marche! From Genga you will set off towards Mount Murano. From a height of 830 metres, it will offer you breathtaking views over the entire Vallesina valley.
For lunch you are expected by our passionate beekeeper. The welcome to his home is immediately sweet! A lunch/tasting based on farm produce awaits you. You will discover and taste the honey in delicious combinations proposed for you by a connoisseur!
It’s soon time to immerse yourself in the world of bees! Dressed in beekeeper’s clothes, you will go to the apiary to learn more about the world of bees and its orderly complexity! You will become a beekeeper for a day and handle the tools of the trade while discovering all the products of the hive, in particular royal jelly, which you will collect and take to the laboratory for extraction. The most courageous (you will understand why) will be able to graft new “sticks” to take back to the apiary!

We arrive in San Marcello, a small village in the hills above the town of Jesi. Here you will meet an expert olive grower, who will take you on a walk through his olive grove, telling you the story of his farm and the varieties of olives he grows.
After the walk, you will be transferred to the laboratory to take part in a tasting of the monovarietal olive oil produced on the farm: a real mini course in professional tasting of extra virgin olive oil! After tasting the different types of olive oil, it’s time to savour the farm’s other products. We don’t want to reveal anything, the surprise is worth the wait! And finally, a real treat: an olive leaf herbal tea!
Just one kilometre from here, you will reach another place of rare beauty where you will meet two passionate winemakers who have dedicated themselves for years to sustainable, biodynamic viticulture and hospitality in their small farmhouse/osteria.
You will take a walk through the vineyards and learn about the territory, the history of the vines on the farm and the principles of sustainable viticulture adopted on the farm. Here they produce wine in amphora using an ancient technique already in use by the Picenes over 2,000 years ago!
During the short farm tour, you will discover these underground amphorae. In the winery we will talk about the equipment used and the winemaking methods without added yeast, following the philosophy of spontaneous fermentation, and amphora winemaking.
The owners also bring their identity to the table by serving the fruit of their work over a glass. The time has come to taste these delights with a tasting menu where each wine is paired with a dish from the osteria. Accommodation in the same farm.
