Sorrento is a beautiful town perched on a cliff high above the sea with views of Vesuvius and the islands in the Bay of Naples . Use this website to help you plan a visit to this elegant southern Italian resort and find your way to the best beaches and some lovely villages and towns along the Sorrentine peninsula that are perhaps less well known to tourists.


Look out for Vino Novello on sale in Sorrento

Vino Novello

If you visit Sorrento during November you may see Italy ’s Vino Novello on sale in the shops and being served in bars and restaurants.
The light, fruity, new red wine is enjoyable to drink and would be a bargain buy to take home with you.
Vino Novello is similar in taste, body and colour to the French Beaujolais Nouveau, which is exported to a number of other countries after its release.
Like Beaujolais Nouveau, Italy’s new wine should be drunk quickly after the bottle is opened. Unopened bottles should be kept for only a few months.
Italy’s Vino Novello 2011 was launched on 6 November, ten days ahead of Beaujolais Nouveau and has gone on sale in many supermarkets, wine shops and bars.
A major area for production is the Veneto, with the merlot grape being the one most used by wine makers.
The Hotel Savoia in Via Fuorimura, Sorrento, is currently advertising a special dinner to be served in their restaurant, which will be accompanied by Montepulciano Novello.
So if you are lucky enough to get the opportunity to taste an Italian Vino Novello while on holiday in Sorrento, make sure you appreciate it. Salute!
