Wine is obviously influenced by the elements.
Keeping that in mind the Friuli Venezia Giulia chapter of Movimento Turismo Del Vino offers to take willing participants on Friuli Respecting Nature Tour, a 4 day outing built around earth, wind, fire and water.
Program in a few words:
"Explore the essence of Friuli through a four-day full immersion in nature in close contact with its four elements. Air: the fragrance of the sea breeze cooling the coastline. Water: the fascination of the embrace between the river and the sea. Earth: our mountains, our trails and our DOC vineyards. Fire: the thrill of a living fire warming the atmosphere in a winery and the glare of candles lighting Summer nights. And the fifth element. Wine: the essence and the spirit of our territory, harvested with passion by the region’s growers."
Second day, Saturday (Water) starts with visit to Isonzo Delta Natural Reserve, an example of sustainable tourism.
Map of the area (below) shows various hiking paths one can use to explore the reserve where birdwatching is a prime activity.
