This is a short route, but if, as the title suggests, you stop off at the wine cellars along the way to enjoy some tastings, it may seem quite demanding: not just because of the alcohol content in your blood, but also because of the short, steep climbs as you leave the cellars (about 100 metres at 20%). If you do intend to taste some wine, it’s a very good idea to go with a guide, who knows the owners and can also organise samples of piadina bread at the various stands along the route. Shortly after Settecrociari, you can choose to turn left for Lizzano and tackle a short but intense climb up to Villa Silvia, with its historic public park. The Villa is open at weekends and contains a fascinating collection of mechanical musical instruments. The ascent from San Carlo to Oriola is very strenuous. When you reach the Monte Lorenzone winery, you can either turn round and retrace your steps, or continue to Cima Pantani and descend to Borello, before returning to San Carlo.

• TerraBici. The Land of Cycling •

We are located in Emilia Romagna, region bordered by Veneto and the beautiful cities of Venice and Padua to the North, and by Tuscany, Umbria and Marche to the South, offering charming cities such as Florence, Perugia, Assisi and Urbino.

We are characterised by a concentration of adrenaline, traditions and typical cuisine, captured in the most beautiful tours that touch sites on the Adriatic coast such as Cesenatico, the land of Pantani, and reach all the way to Ferrara and Ravenna, cities of art and history, passing through rugged ascents such as those of Cippo and Carpegna, or the Cimone in Modena.
