“The objective of Morellino Gravel – explains a note from the Consortium – is to promote the development of wine cycling in the territory of the denomination, making the area a tourist destination of excellence. “The territory of Morellino di Scansano is the ideal place for lovers of two wheels, with its historical routes that date back to the Etruscan and Roman times, but also nature and food and wine, perfect to be explored by bike” says Bernardo Guicciardini Calamai, president of the Consortium. The highlight of the project will be an event in autumn 2021.
An idea that revolves around the beauty of the Maremma territory, one of the most authentic and intact, and the versatility of “gravel bikes”, designed specifically for those who want medium-long hilly itineraries both on dirt and asphalted roads. “It is an initiative that confirms the desire for collaboration between accommodation facilities and territorial brands – explains Andrea Gurayev, head of Saturnia.bike – to bring all users to live an outdoor experience. Our territory is perfect for all levels, from the most trained person to those who have just approached the world of two wheels. We have chosen autumn to let you experience the thrill of food and wine at 360 degrees. Combining sport with the scents of the territory and the traditions of the real Maremma is a unique emotion of its kind in a period that sees companies engaged in the harvest “.
