Our tour now takes us to the gentle hills surrounding the small medieval burg of Soave, just east of Verona. We’ll stop for a stroll up to the castle with its stunning views of the surrounding countryside. We will visit a small family-run producer where we will take a walk through the vineyards and learn about the local production methods from the winemaker. Here the soil is mainly of volcanic origin and is one of the most famous white wine regions in Italy, producing elegant still and sparkling versions. The visit will be followed by a guided wine tasting of the different versions of Soave and Recioto di Soave.
We’ll stop for a traditional lunch at a local trattoria where you can taste the local specialties and wine. After lunch, transfer service back to the Venice Marco Polo Airport, Venice Tronchetto or Verona Villafranca Airport.
