Soave and Amarone
Meet Soave and Amarone of Valpolicella: the most famous white & red wines of Verona! This new Pagus proposal will allow you to enjoy a complete range of different styles and tastes of traditional wines. Join our half-day wine tour (around 4,5 hours). During the tour, you will visit two different wineries: one in Soave and the second one in the Valpolicella area. Firstly, the "Soave and Amarone" tour will take you along the Soave wine route, showing you all the history and the ancient charm of these hills. On this route, you will experience wines such as Soave DOC, Superiore DOCG, Recioto di Soave DOCG, and Soave sparkling. Pleasing, sweet, exquisite: this is what the word “soave” signifies in Italian. However, “Soave” means a lot more!
Then, we'll take you through that glorious land called Valpolicella, home of the excellent wine that bears the same name. You'll get to try the entire range of Valpolicella DOC and DOCG wines, such as Valpolicella Classico and Superiore, Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto with their different styles. This truly complete tour will leave you with a deeper knowledge of two great wines. Moreover, you will get the chance to visit beautiful places such as the Soave hills and the Valpolicella area, in just one day!

Please notice: the tour leader, in respect of all the guests, will wait for you in case of late maximum for 15 minutes. We want you to spend a lovely day with no distress so, please, in booking our tours, inform us if you have limited mobility (in some old cellars there are stairs); or if you have any intolerance or allergy about food/wine (some tours are including appetizers in the cellar or lunch in local restaurant). We ask you to inform us if you have any appointment after the tour (if you booked a train ticket, an opera show in Arena or a reservation for a restaurant), so we can do our best to respect the schedule. In the cellar, the temperature is constant 15 Celsius degrees (59 Fahrenheit), so we suggest to take with you a sweater or a jacket; if it is be possible we will try to show you the vineyards, so it’s recommended to wear sneakers or comfortable shoes.
