We visited the Franchini winery and it was absolutely the best wine tasting we have ever had. The cellar is like no other and the Amarone and Ripassa was spectacular. Order the cheese and meat on top for 5 Euros. Made the wine taste even better!!! Wish we could ship to Canada but it’s as expensive as the wine or more so we just drank while there.

You won't find a better guide than Sebastian. Very friendly and a huge amount of knowledge of the area and the culture. He brought us to two very unique and different vineyards. Could not recommend this tour enough

We learned a lot about wine production in the Valpolicella region and tasted great wines. The guides were very knowledgeable and answered all questions patiently and great detail.

Absolutely loved the experience. Our host was so kind. She taught us so much, and the food was AMAZING!!! I would highly recommend.

This was a great hands-on experience to have while in Venice! Lots of fun!
