The territory

Suvereto

Suvereto is a small Medieval village, its origins dating back to the early 1000s, resting upon the slopes dominating over the sea and Etruscan coastline, nestled in the green valley traversed by the Cornia, and rich in history and art. In short, it is a real jewel. Within its ancient walls, the town includes cobble-stoned alleyways overlooked by stone houses, historic palazzi, churches, and cloisters.
Its charm, however, is also to be found in its inhabitants, thus keeping the place lively and genuine.

Every Monday morning, beneath the town walls, a small local market is held. In the summer, a succession of events is dedicated to local wines and food; the most famous, the “Calici di Stelle” (the “chalice of stars,” 10 August) attracts a great many wine lovers (www.comune.suvereto.li.it).
The most famed festivals include: Serate Medievali (“Medieval nights,” July) and Sagra del Cinghiale (the wild boar festival, first week of December, www.suvereto.net).
In the village’s restaurants you may enjoy traditional dishes accompanied by our wines. Ask us for suggestions.
