Kosher wine tour and tasting:

After the Jewish itineraries, you can choose to continue your experience with a KOSHER WINE TOUR AND TASTING at “Vini Leuci” winery, Guagnano (Lecce).

Leuci Winery has almost a century old tradition in winemaking, so much that the company name “Lucio Leuci” is the grandchildren’s tribute to the hard work of their grandfather, who produced wines from Salento grapes since 1924. Today, with the same passion, the winery produces kosher products with the most important International Jewish certification, contributing to promote Salento wines in the Jewish world.

The price is not included in the Jewish itinerary. Info and reservations >
