Sip your way around Valpolicella, and discover the region’s famous amarone wine during two winery visits. With a private driver and guide, you’ll first visit a classic wine estate that’s set in the grounds of an ancient villa. Tour the cellars and the villa, then enjoy a lunch of local fare. In the afternoon, call in at a futuristic winery to learn about their modern slant on winemaking. Round-trip transport from Verona included.
Leave your hotel, and travel with your private driver and guide to the Valpolicella region. With vineyards that stretch out from Verona to the lakes, the region produces the famous red Valpolicella wine that is loved around the world.
During your tour, you’ll learn about amarone wine, a full-bodied Valpolicella varietal that’s made with a heavy concentration of corvino grapes. On your first stop of the day, you’ll sample a classic amarone wine that matches the character of the winery — a beautiful ancient villa. Take a tour of its luxurious surrounds, and learn about the winemaking process on a visit to the cellars.
Take a seat for lunch in the villa, and dine on dishes from the local valley with several samples of wine, of course.
In the afternoon, you’ll travel to a modern, cutting-edge winery that also produces prized wines. Meet a local wine expert for a tour of the site, and learn about the winery’s new approach to wine production.
After your second winery visit, return to your vehicle and relax on the journey back. Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
