Traditionally wine has been considered a very posh drink, which was enjoyed by the nobility and only on special occasions. For centuries, wine from the southern destinations was considered to be luxury item. Alas, everything changed in 1926, when a winery opened up in Anyksciai, which still operates today. During this tour, we will visit Anyksciai and its surroundings and enjoy the traditional wine, called Voruta – named after the fortress hills that are mentioned in old historical texts, located in the region nearby.
The region nowadays has more certified winemakers. We will visit one of these modern day winemakers and visit their hand-made wine cellar followed by a traditional dinner with wine pairings.
Wine- tasting would not be the same without the cheese-tasting. Hence, after the two wine-tasting stops we will embark on a trip to Rokiškis, known for it’s traditional cheesemaking traditions and considered the cheese capital of Lithuania.
