“Mondo Wine Tour”
Four of us just finished five days of wine tasting and local dining in Soave, Valpolicella, Prosecco, and Friuli. Mario and Rachel did a great job setting us up at small producers and a few others I specifically requested. This was a wonderful, carefree experience. Worth every penny.
