Among the countless wine tours, this is a niche product.
We have been delivering Amarone wine tours for 20+ years; we have been researching the most interesting independent wine growers and quality Amarone wine cellars for 2 decades.
We don't do the easy thing: we never take people to the obvious, mainstream wineries.
And our added value is our expertise in spotting beauty and delivering the sense of a place. The intermissions between a winery visit and another are not incidental, they are fundamental. We make sure your eyes are filled with meaningful views.
The output is this Amarone wine tour that is polished, cordial and well- balanced.
We gladly put together a special blend of
- 2 very small cellars (from 5 to 15 acres)
- a ride on the gentle hills
- a seasonal, elegant-but-not-formal lunch
On this tour wineries are never located in the valley floors: we know they are never the best. We have access to far more wineries than average tour companies. We invite you to meet independent wine growers for a behind-the-scene take of their Amarone and Valpolicella wines.
On this tour you learn about the authoctone grape varietals of the Valpolicella: corvina, corvinone, rondinella, oseleta, croatina, and you get insights that only a wine maker knows. You understand about the drying process of the grapes for 100 days after the harvest.
Time for lunch! We pull out a place from our bucket list: quality food without snobbery, seasonal produce, and above all:the right bottle for every dish. Intimate, delicious, unforgettable!
The land where the Amarone is born stretches from the Adige river valley to the peaks of the pre-Alps. We are happy to show you a variety of landscapes, colors and settings, including a garden or a historical villa.
This Amarone wine tour includes: guide service, all tastings, lunch, luxury car/van with driver.
It is a private Verona wine guided tour and lasts 7 hours.
Please enquire beforehand: very often small cellars have no hospitaity staff, so it is important to reserve well-ahead in time.
