Try Amarone in two wineries: here’s one of our most popular wine tours!
We will take you through the glorious Valpolicella land to discover all the secrets of our traditional red wines. While on the wine route, you will stop at two different wineries. Here, you will get to taste the entire range of their DOC* and DOCG** wines, such as Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto with their different styles.
Amarone is probably the most famous wine of Valpolicella. Particular and inimitable, it’s a synonym for distinction. Its exclusivity recalls the hard work necessary to create this complex wine. Did you know that it was created almost by mistake?
This tour is a really great and unique opportunity to get to know the Amarone wine making process right inside their wineries as well as the famous appassimento method. Moreover, you will learn techniques and curiosities directly from the wine makers!
On the way, be sure not to miss the great scenery of our hills and their vineyards… Certainly, every season is different, but it’s always an extraordinary show on Earth!
