Venice Winery TourMarch 6, 2019
A memorable day trip for wine and olive oil lovers
from euro 165/person
The Soave wine region lays just east of Verona, where the gentle hills are dotted with vineyards and olive groves. This wine area takes its name from the small medieval burg of Soave. Our day combines a visit to a boutique winery and an artisanal olive oil producer.
At the winery, our visit starts with a walk through the vineyards to learn about the local grapes and terrain. 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.
Now it’s time for a traditional lunch at a local trattoria where you can taste the local specialties and wine. After lunch we’ll stop in the small town of Soave for a stroll up to the castle with its stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
Our visit to an artisanal olive oil producer will give you a good overview of how this important Italian specialty is crafted. From the olive grove to the bottle, you will learn about all of the steps involved in producing olive oil. Your visit concludes with a guided tasting of two different olive oils and other olive oil products.
