Self-drive wine excursion with expert guide on board
Choose from German, English or Italian
Make the most of your time in wine country with an engaging and friendly local wine expert. Begin by choosing your wine destination from the best production areas of Veneto and Friuli. Your personal wine guide will then organize your day to meet your specific requests and level of wine knowledge. For example, if you have a particular winery that you would like to visit, that can be arranged. If you give us carte-blanche on the wineries to select, we typically choose to visit small independent wineries that have been making quality wines for generations.
On the day of your tour, you’ll pick up your guide from a convenient location to begin your memorable wine day. You will be using your own car or rental vehicle, with your guide on board to facilitate navigation. Your expert wine guide will have arranged for winery visits throughout the day with a break for lunch. We suggest visiting two wineries but can arrange additional visits if time permits. Discover the quality local wines and sample the local cuisine in a beautiful atmosphere.
Your guide will give you an introduction to the history of the area and its wines as you make your way to the first winery that you’ll be visiting. During your winery visits, your guide will accompany you to answer any questions you might have. At each winery that you visit, you will meet the winemakers and their family. Learn about the local grapes and production methods, from the vineyard to the cellar. Enjoy a full guided tasting at each winery you visit.
At the end of the day you’ll be able to compare and contrast the various wines that you have tasted together. Your guide can also help you make a selection of wines to bring directly home with you or have shipped.
