A wine excursion into the lush Venice countryside
from euro 145/person
Spend a relaxing day in the wine producing area of the Euganean Hills, set in the countryside close to Venice. These lush green hills have been famous for their wine since the ancient Roman Empire, and this area was also known as the private vineyard of the Venetian Republic.
Today this area produces an outstanding variety of quality wines (13 of which carry the D.O.C. label), including reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carménère and Marzemino. Local white wine production includes Pinot Bianco, Moscato, Fior d’Arancio and the sparkling Serprino.
