The tour was extremly awesome. I am South Korean traveling with my parents, and this experience was one of the best we’ve done in Italy. Our guide was Leonardo. He was so kind and talented in telling stories about his hometown Valpolicella. Everything was so smooth that my parents also loved the tour so much. The wine and the foods were excellent and the scenery of winery was so beautiful. It was such a nice experience making friends with kind and smart Italians. The best guide and the driver. 부모님 모시고 한 투어였는데 너무나 친절하고 똑똑란 가이드님이 함께해주셨어요. 친절한 멋쟁이 기사님까지 정말 완벽한 투어였어요. 영어 되시는 분들은 정말 강추합니다.

Visited two wineries guided by Leonardo who was born in the area and very knowledgable. We learnt a little about the process of making wine and tasted several wines from the area along with charcuterie and fromage! We enjoyed the experience and were with a lovely group.

This was a nice tour of a couple of wineries in the Valpolicella region. We were shown the production areas and explained how the wines are made. This was followed by a nice wine tasting including some meats and cheeses from the area to accompany the wines.

Fantastic afternoon tour from Verona. Visited two very different wineyards. Tasted many good wines. Very interesting to see how the productionline in a large winery is. Amazing amount of production.

Fantastic experience. Went to two very different wineries. Not only did we get to taste incredible wines, but we also learned so much!! Highly recommend!
