Our “Soave, lunch and Amarone” wine tour is for those who cannot choose between white and red wines … So why to choose if you can have both? Book this tour and, at the end of the day, you’ll be an expert of Veronese wines. Soave and Valpolicella represent the two most famous excellences of winemaking in Verona area. You’ll start with Soave wine region, east of Verona province, where you’ll visit a cellar and taste wines obtained by our local grape Garganega in different versions (sparkling, dry, sweet).
Then, you’ll visit a Valpolicella (non-Classica) cellar. Here, you are going to taste the entire range of Valpolicella wines DOC and DOCG, such as Valpolicella, Ripasso, his majesty Amarone and Recioto with their different styles.
The perfect way to end the morning? We’ll have lunch all together in a local Enoteca or typical Osteria to enjoy a complete lunch (starters, first and second course, dessert) based on seasonal and local food, of course, paired with more wine.
