Lake Nemi in the Alban hills near Rome claims to have the first underwater wine cellar in Italy. Following a successful experiment last year, when 300 bottles of local Caligula DOC wine, produced in the volcanic crater of Nemi, were laid to mature on the bottom of the lake, the “submerged wine cellar” is to be amplified and improved ready to receive the 2020 “annata.

The absence of oxygen and the constant temperature of the water guarantees ideal conditions for the wine to mature, according to the diving team operators, directed by diving instructor José Amici, in collaboration with Nemi Town Council and Coldiretti, the Italian National Farmers Association.
